Reno:  The long-shuttered Kings Inn casino has been purchased by Las Vegas-based Bentar Development.
Closed since 1986, the abandoned building is considered by many to be Reno’s most prominent eye sore, still it’s
managed to escape demolition. Plans for the property have not been announced.

Lake Tahoe:  The former Horizon casino that was to reopen as Park Tahoe Casino Resort will instead become a
Hard Rock. It’s scheduled to debut late this year or in early 2015.

Laughlin:  Nevada Restaurant Services, owner of the Dotty’s slot-parlor chain, has purchased the River Palms
casino in Laughlin for $6.75 million. It’s the second casino the company has bought, along with the Hacienda near
Lake Mead. The River Palms, which originally opened in 1984 as Sam’s Town, will be closed indefinitely while a
total renovation of the 1,000-room hotel and casino is carried out.

Iowa:  After a complicated legal battle over its license, the Argosy in Sioux City has closed. The $128.5 million
Hard Rock is scheduled to open in Sioux City on Aug. 1.

Atlantic City:  Trump Plaza has announced that it will close in September, making it potentially four Atlantic City
casinos to do so this year. Only the Atlantic Club has actually closed, however. Revel and Showboat are both
expected to cease operations this month, but nothing is certain, as attempts are being made to legally force
Trump Plaza and the Showboat to remain open for at least four additional months, and no official closing date has
been announced for Revel.

Massachusetts:  It’s not quite over yet in Massachusetts after the state Supreme Court ruled that the legalization
of casinos there must be approved by voters. Although polling indicates that legalization will be supported, it still
creates uncertainty and additional expenses for the leading candidates for licenses, including MRI, which has
already been approved. No date for the vote has been announced.
New York:  At last count, there were 17 proposals submitted for four casino licenses in upstate New York. The
casinos will be located in the Albany-Saratoga area, the Southern Tier-Finger Oaks region, and the Catskills and
mid-Hudson River Valley. Caesars, Mohegan Sun, and Hard Rock are among the applicants. A state board will
narrow the field later this year.

Maryland:  The $442 million Horseshoe Casino Baltimore opened in August. The 122,000-square-foot casino will
feature roughly 2,500 slots and 100 table games, along with a poker room. It’s the fifth casino to open in the state.

Ohio:  The $250 million Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway opened in August. The state’s sixth racino is
located in North Dayton and will have 1,000 machines.

Colorado:  Big Jim’s Gambling Hall and Saloon in Cripple Creek has closed. Competition from the state’s
unregulated Internet sweepstakes cafes was cited as a major reason for the closing and is thought to have hurt
business at most casinos in the Black Hawk, Central City, and Cripple Creek gambling jurisdictions.

Macau:  Gambling win fell 3.7% in June, marking Macau’s first revenue decline since the figures began being
tracked in 2010. The drop was expected, however, with the World Cup blamed for diverting the attentions of

Online:  Ultimate Poker has partnered with the El Cortez, which means players can now deposit and cash out at
the casino cage after opening an online account. A similar arrangement has also been put in place at five
Peppermill properties, including the casino in Reno. When combined with Station casinos, there are now more
than 20 bricks-and-mortar options for moving money in and out of an Ultimate Poker account. Nevada’s three
online operators made $862,000 in May, an 8.8% increase over April. In New Jersey, the state’s failure to grow its
Internet gaming revenue has led Fitch Ratings to further lower online estimates, cutting its annual earnings
forecast to just $130 million from a previously estimated $300 million.
