A great example of gaming fueled growth. PT & Nev Pubs; Pahrumph Nugget; Colorado presence; now managing the Hard Rock; at least short term.
Full House active; Golden active; Cannery active and expanding; Cal Nev out of Reno active; and a host of other wannabees I am sure.
Whole lot of competition out there. Lots of interest in S. Nevada gaming.
Is a Golden / Betm relationship/ interest a possibility??
Mesquite, Nv gaming growing highest in the state; population will double over the next 6 years as Pulte Sun City comes on line (summer 07). Betm has presence in the Eureka; which is also doubling its size with current construction program. Mesquite currently has a population of about 23,000 and will probably go to 40k plus; with 14,000 approved housing units in the pipeline. The Randy Black group owns 3 major casinos; T Lee the Eureka. Golden should also look there.
Wonder if Betm has ever looked at the small Stateline Casino/Motel on Mesquite Blvd; East of the two major resort hotels of Casablanca & Oasis. A classic locals joint with small growth possibilities??Possibly in Betm's range; but who knows.
Did you say the Station Casino Family...that is a lot of money..Some casinos if they are not run right are not making the money they are supposed to....In Respect to BETM (American Wagering)..they have to establish an other casino in Northern Nevada. I gather that Winnemucca would be a nice place. There are a few main highways going through the town.....On thing that BETM has going for it is that we are the ones in Nevada through CBS that sets up the Sports and horse books in Nevada...all th casinos in Nevada who have Sports and horse books were installed by CBS, including WYNN, MGM, Silverton, Riviera in Las Vegas...So in Winnemucca we can put up a great Sports Book with all types of proposition bets...But all things take time...Station Casinos at one time was a bowling alley....
