JAMUL, Calif. (KGTV) -- The Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego is undergoing a name and management change. 

As of Tuesday, the Hollywood sign came down, making room for the casino’s new name, which is simply Jamul Casino.

In March, it was announced that the Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation would take over management of the casino. The $460 million casino was previously managed by Penn National Gaming.

The casino put out a statement Tuesday saying the casino will not only have a new name, but a new look.
