Subsequent Events [Abstract]  
Settlement Agreement Amendment. On January 28, 2015, we entered into that certain First Amendment to Settlement Agreement (the “Amended Settlement Agreement”), which modified portions of the Settlement Agreement by and among the Company and the Shareholder Group.
The Settlement Agreement required, among other things, (i) a board of directors consisting of nine members and (ii) that Raymond Hemmig be nominated and elected to the board of directors at the 2015 Annual Meeting. Pursuant to the resignation of Mr. Hemmig, the Company and the Shareholder Group agreed to amend the Settlement Agreement which eliminates the requirement that Mr. Hemmig be nominated and elected to the Board, and acknowledges the reduction in the size of the board of directors from nine to eight directors. Mr. Hemmig did not have any disagreements with the Company.
Employment Agreement. On January 30, 2015, we entered into an employment agreement with Lewis Fanger, who will serve as the Company’s Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. In connection with entering into the employment agreement, Mr. Fanger was granted, outside of the 2006 Plan and qualifying as inducement options, nonqualified stock options covering 300,000 shares of Company common stock with a per share exercise price of $1.37, the closing price per share on the grant date. The stock options will vest with respect to 25% of the shares on January 30, 2016 and will continue to vest with respect to an additional 1/48th of the shares on each monthly anniversary thereafter, subject to Mr. Fanger’s continued service through the applicable vesting date. The stock options will vest in full on a change in control of the Company.
Tax Elections. On March 13, 2015, we filed an election with the Internal Revenue Service which will result in our subsidiaries, Silver Slipper Casino Venture, LLC and Gaming Entertainment (Nevada), LLC, being taxed as corporations effective January 1, 2015.
