Pinnacle Entertainment announcer today it has signed a definitive agreement under which it will acquire certain Lake Charles, Louisiana gaming assets of Harrah's Entertainment, Inc.

The agreement, which formalizes a letter of intent announced on April 17, also calls for the sale of certain of Pinnacle's Casino Magic Biloxi assets to a subsidiary of Harrah's Entertainment.
