Playing a full house at Full House Resorts, Las Vegas

Dan-Lee-Full-House

Or, how CEO Dan Lee’s company survived the pandemic and plans to thrive. By David McKee

Although it is based in Las Vegas, Full House Resorts is anything but a Sin City-centric company. Instead, it has made its name serving some of gaming’s niche markets. Its five-casino (soon to be six) reach encompasses: the Silver Slipper in Biloxi, Mississippi; Rising Star in Rising Sun on the southernmost fringe of Indiana; Bronco Billy’s in Cripple Creek, Colorado; Stockman’s Casino in Fallon, Nevada; and Grand Lodge Casino on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Full House is a boutique operation. None of its casinos has more than 1,000 slots and Bronco Billy’s only has 24 hotel rooms—a situation in Cripple Creek that is soon to change with the construction of Full House’s five-star Chamonix resort.

Rebounding from the pandemic, the international operator eyes more U.S. opportunities. By David McKee

Defying adversity, Century Casinos is firmly on the comeback trail from the Coronavirus pandemic. It recorded its best-ever quarter this spring, even without a full repertory of operational casinos, thanks to health-related closures in Canada and Poland. Century also did it without anything like a full cohort of international players. Fortunately, Century’s bedrock is a loyal core of gaming-centric local customers and they have helped the company rebound in record time, recording an all-time level of cash flow between April and June of this year.
