Colorado Grande Casino expansion opens July 2nd
June 1, 2009
CRIPPLE CREEK -
Nevada Gold & Casinos, Inc. today announced that expansion of Colorado Grande
Casino are well underway and are scheduled to open July 2, 2009.
The Colorado Grande-Cripple Creek Casino is currently 6,200 square feet. It is
located near the center of the Cripple Creek market and features 200 slot
machines, five guest rooms, 44 parking spaces, and Maggie's Restaurant.
The expansion will increase the facility by approximately 20% to take advantage
of last year's Amendment 50. The constitutional change allows an increase in the
bet limits, additional types of table games, 24-hour gaming and a fixed tax
Robert Sturges, CEO of Nevada Gold, said "Our expansion plans are proceeding
nicely at the Colorado Grande Casino and we feel that our enhanced facility will
add to the overall experience at that location. We also feel that this expansion
will draw more customers since the Colorado Grande is the only casino in Cripple
Creek that will be adding table games to a slot-only floor. We plan to add four
table games, including blackjack and roulette, additional food and beverage
options, an additional street level entrance and convert our guest rooms to full
service hotel rooms. We look forward to being able to provide our guests with
enhanced offerings while still giving them the same level of customer service
they have come to expect from our facility."
