14 April 2008

MISSISSIPPI -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISLE) announced today that as of 3:00 a.m. central time its casino property in Natchez, Mississippi has been closed temporarily until flood waters recede.

"We have been working closely with local officials to ensure the safety of our guests and team members and we appreciate the efforts of both city officials and law enforcement representatives. At this point, the Mississippi River has reached levels where containment measures are no longer a possibility," Jack Sours, vice president and general manager, said. "We are working closely with our management staff to ensure that our team members are not adversely impacted and we have adequate insurance in place to cover the closure."
