Century Casinos, Inc. Reveals Record Third Quarter Results Driven by Acquired US Casinos

The Company's third quarter 2020 results were significantly impacted by the acquisition of Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort, Century Casino Cape Girardeau and Century Casino Caruthersville (the "Acquired Casinos") in December 2019.

COVID-19 Update

In late 2019, an outbreak of COVID-19 was identified in China and has since spread throughout much of the world. Between March 13, 2020 and March 17, 2020, the Company closed all of its casinos, hotels and other facilities to comply with quarantines issued by governments to contain the spread of COVID-19. The Company's Polish locations reopened on May 18, 2020 and its North American operations reopened between June 1, 2020 and June 17, 2020.

Although the Company's results of operations and cash flow improved significantly in the third quarter of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has had an adverse effect on the Company's results of operations and financial condition for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, and the Company expects this situation will continue to have an adverse impact on its results for the remainder of 2020 and perhaps into 2021. The duration and ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic otherwise remains uncertain.

The Company's casinos have varied their operations based on the governmental health and safety requirements in the jurisdictions in which they are located. In Colorado, each city has different gaming floor restrictions. In Cripple Creek, the full slot floor is open but table games are expected to remain closed through 2020. In Central City, the casino is currently operating approximately 65% of the slot machines and table games are reopened, with the exception of craps and roulette which closed in October 2020. For both Colorado cities there are capacity restrictions within the casinos and alcohol sales must stop at midnight but the casinos are able to operate 24/7. In Missouri, the full gaming floor is open, hours of operation are reduced, and food outlets that have reopened have limited operating hours. In West Virginia, the majority of the gaming floor has reopened, the gaming floor is limited to machines that are six feet apart or with barriers, food and beverage outlets have reopened with limited hours of operation, the convention space remains closed and is anticipated to remain closed through 2020, hours of operation are limited to 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m., there are capacity restrictions within the casino, and the hotel is operating with limited rooms available. In Canada, the gaming floors are currently operating approximately 60% of the total gaming machines, hours of operation are limited to 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 a.m., there are restrictions on spectators at the racetracks, and the hotel and showroom in Edmonton remain closed.
