|LAS VEGAS, Feb. 11, 2008 - Ameristar Casinos, Inc. (Nasdaq:
ASCA) today announced that Reginald Fullwood, Jr. has been appointed Senior
Vice President and General Manager of Ameristar Black Hawk, effective today.
"I'm pleased to welcome Reggie to the Ameristar team," said Ameristar Senior Vice President of Operations Michelle Shriver, to whom Fullwood will report. "Reggie is an accomplished leader who has proven his ability to generate strong returns and elevate guests' overall gaming experience. His considerable industry experience and commitment to exceptional guest service will be a tremendous asset as we continue our expansion of the Black Hawk property and offer a greater array of superior products and services."
Fullwood joins Ameristar from Harrah's Entertainment, Inc., where he served as Vice President and Operations Controller of Harrah's Atlantic City.

"I am very excited to lead Ameristar Black Hawk's property and work with the team to maximize its operating potential in the Denver marketplace. I look forward to further strengthening Ameristar's commitment to providing superior guest service and product quality every day."
Prior to entering the gaming industry, Fullwood served in Credit Suisse First Boston's investment banking division and as a Captain and Company Commander in the United States Army.
