One of the few remaining historic casinos in Las Vegas has been sold. The Tropicana resort, which has been in the same location since 1957, was sold to Pinnacle Entertainment. The property had been slated for a rennovation later this year, but since the buyout the new owners says it will be at least two years before it comes up with a design plan for the property. The intersection of Tropicana Avenue and the strip is one of the busiest in Las Vegas. The last rennovation to the property was in the mid eighties when a tower was added.
