LDC spokesman Skip Sayre, in a statement Monday, said changes planned include new slot machines, new decor and more food and beverage options.

Sayre said Isle of Capri remains a relevant gambling destination in the Lake Charles area, even among newer casinos like L'Auberge Casino Resort and the Golden Nugget, because of its stable target audience.
"It has a certain part of the market share, a certain kind of customer that this brand appeals to," Sayre said.
He said Laguna wants to solidify that customer base and build upon it in the near future.
"First thing is we keep those customers and keep them happy, and then offer other opportunities as far as our products and services that will allow us to grow the business," Sayre said.
Multiple news outlets report ( ; ) Laguna also plans to retain all of the property's nearly 1,000 employees.
"We want them to stay with us, we're not looking to come in and make a lot of management or staffing changes," Sayre said.

"This is in no way an official announcement declaring LDC's intentions regarding the sixth license," said Skip Sayre, LDC's chief of sales and marketing.

Sayre said any official actions that would be taken by LDC in vying for the final license hinges on the New Mexico Racing Commission re-opening the Request for Proposal (RFP) for bidding.
Sayre said LDC has placed options on parcels of land in Curry County as well as obtained office space in Clovis. Although LDC would not exercise any options on the land or occupy the office space until the racing commission moves forward in its position.
Sayre said the event planed on June 27, at the Route 66 Casino (an LDC property), is to help the communities of Clovis and Portales to become familiar with the corporation. He said it is the first of several events that have been planned, aimed to help the members of the communities to understand how the cooperation operates.
"LDC is very proud of the hard work and success it has had in the gaming/casino industry in New Mexico," Sayre said. "There is no better way to explain what LDC does than for people to experience first hand the operations of one of the corporation's successful properties.
Sayre said for several weeks LDC officials have been reaching out to various members of the community in order to become familiar with the region's demographics, resources and needs and concerns of the residents. He said research has been conducted to gauge the public's opinion, perceptions and reception to horse racing, gambling and the idea of opening a race track and casino in Clovis.
"These events are just a way for everyone to become aquatinted," Sayre said.
Sayre said while LDC is owned by the Pueblo of Laguna, he wanted to clarify that should a Racino be opened in Clovis it would not operate as a sovereign business.
He said the Racino's would operate as a independent entity, managed by LDC, separate from the Pueblo's sovereignty.
