Maverick Gaming announced the launch of its new “Ace’s Poker” room in the city of Mountlake Terrace, Washington. This exciting new poker brand is the first in the state and represents the continuous investment in Maverick Gaming’s strategy to redevelop and connect its properties across its regional footprint. Based in Kirkland, Washington, Maverick Gaming has acquired numerous unique brands and properties in Nevada, Colorado, and Washington. The multi-year plan is to upgrade the physical infrastructure, improve the overall gaming/guest experience, and rebrand as Maverick Casino & Hotel, Ace’s Poker, Dragon Tiger Casino, or Macau Legend. The integration of its properties showcases Maverick Gaming’s investment in local communities, including its long-term commitment as a community partner through its employee-led philanthropic arm, Maverick Cares.
“I am excited to continue investing in our local communities by offering great jobs in a new venue for entertainment in Mountlake Terrace. Growing up in Hoquiam, it was a dream of mine to build a gaming company in my home state of Washington. Ace’s Poker is designed to be a destination of choice for those who like to play cards responsibly,” said Eric Persson, Chief Executive Officer and majority owner of Maverick Gaming.
Maverick Gaming’s state-of-the-art property will debut with over $2 million in renovations, highlighting an investment in the local economy and workers. Ace’s Poker will employ 90 staff from its union-led workforce (Maverick Gaming is the largest private sector employer of Teamsters Local 117 members in the state of Washington). Each facility will continue to be an integral part of Maverick Gaming’s implementation of rigorous problem gambling policies which include a company-wide self-exclusion practice, which was one of the first in the state. Renovations and features of the new property include:
