Tropicana Closing Plans For Casino Chips, Vouchers And Hotel Reservations

Tropicana Hotel In Las Vegas Seen In 1974

In January, Bally’s Corp., the operator of Tropicana Las Vegas announced the historic casino would be closing its doors for good on April 2. Don’t get too tied to that date because most people will be sleeping when the casino stops operations on that date.

The first thing to know about Tropicana Las Vegas closing is that the last day most people will visit the historic casino is April 1.

The casino technically closes on April 2 at noon (table games will stop at 3 am.m). This date might confuse some looking to make one last visit to the Las Vegas casino built in the 1950s.

Bally’s Corp. is closing Tropicana with plans to redevelop the property. The first plan for the 35-acre plot of land is to build a Major League Baseball (MLB) stadium should the Oakland A’s move to Las Vegas.

The MLB team recently released renderings of the proposed A’s stadium on the Vegas Strip. At this time construction is slated to begin early next year.

The company is working on plans to build a new hotel and casino that will be called Bally’s Las Vegas. Bally’s is still working on plans for the new property, which could also include a retail plaza in partnership with the A’s.

Construction crews started preparing the Tropicana for demolition last week.

Bally’s hasn’t announced how the main hotel tower will be demolished. The company could have one of the classic Vegas casino implosions or just slowly knock the property down.

While plans after Tropicana closing are still in limbo, Bally’s released some closing information.

Tropicana Las Vegas casino closing plans

Bally’s has posted plans for those with hotel reservations and anyone looking to cash in casino chips or wagering vouchers after the property closes on April 2.


Tropicana Rewards Club points can be used at the property until April 1, 2024. After closing Rewards Club members can redeem points and rewards at any of Bally’s casinos around the country, including Bally’s Lake Tahoe in Northern Nevada.

There are currently 14 other Bally’s casinos around the US:

  • Atlantic City, NJ
  • Biloxi, MS (Hard Rock)
  • Blackhawk, CO (East, West, North)
  • Chicago, IL
  • Dover, DE
  • Evansville, IN
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Lake Tahoe, NV
  • Lincoln, RI
  • Rock Island, IL
  • Shreveport, LA
  • Tiverton, RI
  • Vicksburg, MS

Chip redemption

Visitors to Tropicana can redeem chips on-site until the property closes on April 2. Anyone with chips from Tropicana after this date can cash them in next door at OYO Las Vegas main cashier cage until July 31, 2024.

Oyo will exchange Tropicana chips for a limited time. The neighboring casino will not redeem Tropicana wagering vouchers at all.

Wagering voucher redemption (AKA TITO)

There’s a different procedure to redeem wagering vouchers from Tropicana.

Anyone with a leftover wagering voucher from a video poker, slot machine, or electronic table game from Tropicana can only redeem it by mailing it to the company before the expiration date listed on the ticket.

The address is 3801 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas, NV 89109. Anyone with a Tropicana Rewards Club account should include that or a copy of their ID with the wagering voucher.

Hotel stays

The last night of hotel operations at Tropicana is April 1. As of the writing of this article, Tropicana hotel rooms are available for a little more than $500 plus tax and fees for the last night of business. Hotel rooms at Tropicana are not available after April 1.

Tropicana is already canceling reservations made for April 2 and beyond. If the hotel cancels a reservation guests should have a deposit returned in the next 7-10 days if the room was booked at or Hilton.

If a room was booked through a third party, like Expedia, visit that vendor for their policy.

Bally’s is honoring Tropicana employees

In the weeks leading up to the closure of the Tropicana, Bally’s will be honoring more than 700 employees on the casino’s marquee. Bally’s (NYSE: BALY) will also have a team member appreciation day for the staff.
