Organization. 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 five casinos: four on real estate that we own or lease and one located within a hotel owned by a third party. We are currently constructing two additional properties: Chamonix Casino Hotel (“Chamonix”), adjacent to the Company’s existing Bronco Billy’s Casino and Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado; and The Temporary by American Place (“The Temporary”) in Waukegan, Illinois. We also benefit from seven permitted sports wagering “skins,” three in Colorado, three in Indiana, and one in Illinois that we expect to receive shortly after the opening of The Temporary. As of September 30, 2022, five of our seven online skins are contracted with other companies, and four of which are currently in operation. These contracts allow the counterparties to operate online sports wagering sites under their brands, paying us a percentage of revenues, as defined in each respective agreement, subject to annual minimum amounts.
In December 2021, Full House was selected by the Illinois Gaming Board (“IGB”) to develop its American Place project in Waukegan, Illinois, a northern suburb of Chicago. During the period that the permanent American Place facility is under construction, we intend to operate a temporary casino facility named The Temporary. In May 2022, we commenced construction of The Temporary, which is expected to open within the next three months, subject to customary regulatory approvals.
The following table identifies our segments, along with properties and their locations:
The Company manages its casinos based primarily on geographic regions within the United States and type of income. See Note 10 for further information.
COVID-19 Pandemic Update. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. Governmental authorities continue to update their precautionary measures and promote vaccination programs to manage the spread of the virus as different variants of the virus surface and subside. The Company has generally benefited from the gradual relaxation of pandemic-related business restrictions since 2021.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic and certain precautionary measures, as well as other factors, have created economic uncertainty both in the United States and globally, as well as significant volatility in, and disruption to, financial markets, labor markets and supply chains. Global supply chain disruptions and other world events have resulted in shipping delays, increased shipping costs, supply shortages, and inflationary pressures, including increases in prices for fuel, food, building materials, and other items. These increased costs, labor shortages, and supply shortages continued to put additional constraints on our operating business and our construction projects for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. We do not know when, or if, these cost, labor and supply chain issues will materially alleviate and, accordingly, they may continue to impact our existing business and our construction projects.
We believe that as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, the direct and indirect impacts on global macro-economic conditions, as well as conditions specific to us, are becoming more difficult to isolate or quantify. In addition, these direct and indirect factors can make it difficult to isolate and quantify the portion of our costs that are a direct result of the pandemic versus costs arising from factors that may have been influenced by the pandemic, including supply chain constraints, increased prices and inflationary pressures, labor shortages, and changes in the spending patterns of customers. These factors and their effects on our operations may persist for a longer period, even after the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided.
