SCHEDULE 13D

Item 1.  Security and Issuer

The Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 9, 2010 by the Reporting Persons and certain affiliates thereof and as amended by Amendments No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 thereto (as amended, the “Schedule 13D”) with respect to the shares of Common Stock, par value $0.01 (the “Shares”), issued by Tropicana Entertainment Inc. (the “Issuer”) is hereby amended to furnish the additional information set forth herein.  All capitalized terms contained herein but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D.

Item 3.  Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

Item 3 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended by replacing it in its entirety with the following:

The Reporting Persons hold, in the aggregate, 17,862,706 Shares. The aggregate purchase price of the Shares purchased by the Reporting Persons that are being reported in this Schedule 13D was approximately $9.9 million (including commissions to purchase Shares). The source of funding for the purchase of these Shares was the general working capital of the purchaser.

Item 5.  Interest in Securities of the Issuer

Item 5 of the Schedule 13D is amended by adding the following:

(a) The Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own, in the aggregate, 17,862,706 Shares, representing approximately 67.89% of the Issuer's outstanding Shares (based upon the 26,312,500 Shares stated to be outstanding as of October 31, 2012 according to the Issuer’s Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2012).

(b) Icahn Enterprises Holdings has sole voting power and sole dispositive power with regard to 17,862,706 Shares. Each of Icahn Enterprises GP, Beckton and Mr. Icahn has shared voting power and shared dispositive power with regard to such Shares.  Each of Icahn Enterprises GP, Beckton and Mr. Icahn, by virtue of their relationships to Icahn Enterprises Holdings (as disclosed in Item 2 of the Schedule 13D), may be deemed to indirectly beneficially own (as that term is defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Act) the Shares which Icahn Enterprises Holdings directly beneficially owns. Each of Icahn Enterprises GP, Beckton and Mr. Icahn disclaims beneficial ownership of such Shares for all other purposes.

(c) The following table sets forth all transactions with respect to Shares effected in the past sixty days, inclusive of any transactions effected through 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 19, 2012. Except as otherwise noted below, all such transactions were purchases of Shares effected in the open market, and the table includes commissions paid in per share prices.
