LAS VEGAS, NV – July 2nd, 2019 – Maverick Gaming LLC (“Maverick” or “Maverick Gaming”) today announced the signing of a definitive purchase agreement to buy Roman Casino located in Renton Washington.
“This purchase gives Maverick thirteen card rooms in Washington and nearly 200 table games” said Eric Persson, Owner of Maverick Gaming.
“In the next month we expect to give details on six more Washington properties, and we look forward to elevating the card room experience in this State,” said Tim Merrill, President of Maverick Washington. “As our cardroom footprint grows, customers will achieve significant player benefits, such as the ability to earn points at one property and redeem at another. We also intend to develop hotels in the Seattle market, which are badly needed, and customers will be able to redeem points for room nights as well.”
“It feels great to be back home and the fact that my company will provide over 3,000 jobs which have average compensation above $75,000 is something that I am very proud of. We look forward to adding even more jobs and opportunity over the next several years” said Mr. Persson.
Maverick intends to fund this GAG transaction primarily with cash on hand and debt financing from HG Vora Capital Management, a private investment firm.
