Changes to Segment Reporting Format

As a result of the acquisition of Ameristar Casinos, Inc., and the integration
of its properties into Pinnacle Entertainment's operations and financial
reporting, the Company will make changes to its reportable segment disclosures
beginning with the 2013 third quarter. The new reportable segments will
generally align the Company's external financial reporting segments with its
new internal operating segments, which are based on its internal
organizational structure, operating decisions, and performance assessment. The
Company's three reportable segments will be comprised of the following:

The Company's South segment will consist of the financial results for the
following properties: L'Auberge Lake Charles, Boomtown New Orleans, L'Auberge
Baton Rouge, Boomtown Bossier City, and Ameristar Casino Hotel Vicksburg.

The Company's Midwest segment will consist of the financial results for the
following properties: River City, Belterra, Ameristar St. Charles, Ameristar
Council Bluffs, Ameristar Kansas City, Ameristar East Chicago, and River
Downs. Lumiere Place Casino and Hotels will be accounted for as a discontinued
operation beginning in the 2013 third quarter and will not be incorporated in
the Midwest segment's results.

The Company's West segment will consist of the financial results for the
following properties: Ameristar Casino Resort Spa Black Hawk, Cactus Pete's
and Horseshu Hotel & Casino.

Corporate expenses and Other operations, while not considered a reportable
segment for external financial reporting purposes, will continue to be
disclosed separately from the results of the South, Midwest, and West
reportable segments. Other operations consist of the management of Retama Park
and the Heartland Poker Tour.

Financial results related to Ameristar Casinos, Inc. will be reflected in
Pinnacle Entertainment's reported financial results for the portion of the
2013 third quarter that followed the completion of the transaction on August
13, 2013. The Company intends to provide supplemental financial disclosure for
the predecessor period of July 1, 2013 to August 12, 2013 for Ameristar
Casino's operations, as well as a comparison of that predecessor period to the
comparable prior year period, in order to provide investors with information
the Company believes is useful in considering the value this transaction
brings to Pinnacle Entertainment.
