Gary, Ind., February 9, 2004 - Majestic Star Casino announces Mike Ditka as their spokesperson. The goal of the Majestic Star Casino/Ditka partnership is to create a winning team. Ditka will star in commercials, make public appearances and will be showcased on billboards. "I hope to make people more cognizant of the positive changes that are taking place at the casino," said Ditka. "Majestic Star Casino is a great place to play! The odds are fair and you have a legitimate chance of winning. Casinos, especially Majestic Star are all about customer service."

"Majestic Star is committed to making the STAR the entertainment destination on the lake," said Troy Keeping, Vice President and General Manager. "We are proud of our property and all of the changes that have been made. People visit casinos for the entertainment experience and we are confident that guests will be very pleased with the improvements. Come see for yourself!"

Majestic Star has made some significant changes by committing millions of dollars and resources geared to provide the highest service standards for guests. Some of the changes include hundreds of new slot and Ticket In, Ticket Out (TITO) games. The slot floor was reconfigured including wider aisles and new carpet. The use of tickets at boarding was eliminated to allow guests to board whenever it is convenient for them. Table games have also been reconfigured with some of the newest products in the Chicago area. Guests may win big on over 50 table games including classics such as blackjack, craps and roulette, as well as newer favorites such as 21+3 which adds a 3-card poker "side game" to original blackjack. In addition, there are 3 games in the NW Indiana area that are currently exclusive to Majestic Star. They are: 3-5-7 Poker, Hi Tie Blackjack and Deuces Wild Fold "em" Hold "em" Poker. Majestic Star is home to some of the biggest jackpots around including unbelievable progressives and payouts. There are new tournament activities including the FREE Monday Slot Tournament and the $60,000 Blackjack Tournament.

Coming in March is a new three-tiered Players Card Program featuring Same Day Cash Back. Guests can play and get paid in the same day. This program offers exceptional service and countless benefits, with rewards available at every level of play. Points will accumulate every time they use their card and they can choose how and when they want to use points. For every $5 slot play on reel and $10 in video games, a point will be received. When guests earn 500 points, they can cash out that day for $5 in cash back or bank the cash for a rainy day. With Same Day Cash Back, they can earn cash every time slots are played. In addition, players will still receive cash in the mail and comps based on the play, making Club Majestic one of the most rewarding player loyalty programs around. After having a "winning day" Club Majestic members can treat themselves to a free shoe shine which is another new service offered. Guests may become a Club Majestic Member by presenting a valid ID at the club booth or ticket counter. Membership is free.
