Formed as a Delaware corporation in 1987, Full House Resorts, Inc. owns, leases, operates, develops, manages, and/or invests in casinos and related hospitality and entertainment facilities. References in this document to “Full House,” the ”Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us” refer to Full House Resorts, Inc. and its subsidiaries, except where stated or the context otherwise indicates.
The Company currently operates six casinos: five on real estate that we own or lease and one located within a hotel owned by a third party. We are currently constructing our seventh property, Chamonix Casino Hotel (“Chamonix”), adjacent to our existing Bronco Billy’s Casino and Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado. We are also designing our permanent American Place casino destination, which will be built adjacent to a temporary facility that we opened in February 2023 named The Temporary by American Place (“The Temporary”). We intend to operate The Temporary until the opening of American Place. Additionally, we benefit from seven permitted sports wagering “skins” – three in Colorado, three in Indiana, and one in Illinois. Other companies operate or will operate these online sports wagering websites under their brands, paying us a percentage of revenues, as defined, subject to annual minimum amounts.
The following table presents selected information concerning our casino resort properties as of December 31, 2022:
The Company manages its casinos based primarily on geographic regions within the United States and type of income. See Note 11 for further information.
COVID-19 Pandemic Update. From March 2020 through the date of this report, our operations have been impacted by the novel coronavirus as a global pandemic (“COVID-19”). Although COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the U.S. and the world, the number of newly reported cases has been in overall decline in the U.S., though new variants could result in a reversal of these trends. The onset of COVID-19 resulted in the implementation of significant, government-imposed measures to prevent or reduce its spread, including travel restrictions, business restrictions, closing of borders, “shelter-in-place” orders and business closures. From April 2020 to March 2021, the federal government issued three rounds of stimulus payments for qualified individuals and sponsored certain CARES Act programs to offer economic relief and reduce the financial strain that many consumers and businesses alike felt from COVID-19 and related restrictions.
While the details of this impact have been disclosed throughout this report, the following discussion of our business focuses on execution of our strategies in a post-pandemic environment based on the assumption that the impact of COVID-19 will eventually diminish and our operations will fully recover. However, the effects of COVID-19 on our operations may persist for a longer period, even after the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided.
