The owner of the Showboat Casino Hotel says the property will definitely shut down on Sunday.The word came a day after Caesars officials conducted a tour of the Showboat with what they described as "an interested party" whom they would not identify.

It marked the first time the company has unequivocally said it will shutter the Showboat since shortly after announcing the shutdown in June. Caesars had said it was fielding offers from interested parties and would consider a sale if one made financial sense. Showboat is one of three Atlantic City casinos closing in the next few weeks. Revel is closing on Monday and Tuesday; it says Sunday will be its last normal day of operation before it starts shutting things down. Trump Plaza is closing Sept. 16.
