Over the next six to eight months, company leaders say they will try to figure out what theme to make the casino. Right now, Isle of Capri Casinos have one of four themes, including a tropical theme, a 50's retro theme, and a railroad theme. "It is really understanding the market. We want the right brand for the Caruthersville Market," Roger Deaton said. Deaton is the Regional Vice President for Isle of Capri Casinos.
Deaton also says none of the almost 300 employees will lose their jobs in the transition. "We plan on keeping existing staff and promoting within. We don't see a reduction in staff," Deaton says. "There will be differences in town. But the jobs will remain, and revenue remains," Lyle Randolph said. He is the Director of Casino Operations.
