Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Twin River Worldwide Holdings, Inc. announced the reopening of its Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Biloxi in Biloxi, MS (“Hard Rock Biloxi”) effective Thursday May 21st. Hard Rock Biloxi is the Company’s second largest casino operation, and represents approximately 20% of the Company’s current portfolio.

Twin River has implemented property-specific comprehensive health and safety protocols, developed in close consultation with state regulators and public health officials in Mississippi. More details on these health and safety protocols can be found on the property specific website at www.hardrockbiloxi.com. These protocols are part of the Company’s overall COVID-19 reopening plan, the components of which are designed to meet or exceed all guidelines established by the CDC.

“Our ability to reopen Hard Rock Biloxi is a testament to the hard work of our team during this pandemic and we were encouraged by the first day results which, even with reduced hours and significant safety protocols in place, generated slot revenue volumes approximately double those of the same day last year,” said George Papanier, President and Chief Executive Officer. “While it is only one day of performance, we are excited and thankful to welcome back our valued team members and loyal customers to an environment that meets or exceeds CDC guidance. We appreciate the collaborative nature of our regulatory relationships in Mississippi, and we will continue to work closely with regulators and public health officials in other states to ensure the timely reopening of our other properties as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.”

With respect to Twin River’s six casinos in Rhode Island, Delaware and Colorado, the Company is actively preparing for the resumption of gaming operations. The Company is working closely with the respective state regulators and public health officials to finalize the comprehensive reopening plans for its other properties. Among other things, these plans include potential screening of team members and guests upon entrance of the properties; thermal imaging cameras; enforcement of social distancing guidelines; including spacing between VLTs and limited or no table games to start; frequent cleaning and sanitizing protocols for all areas; mask protection requirements; and public awareness signage. The Company will provide updated information on the reopening of these additional properties upon receiving all necessary approvals.

Mr. Papanier continued, “As we reopen our properties, we believe we will benefit from our status as a regional gaming company that is largely focused on local and regional visitation rather than air travel, destination or convention business. As such, we believe we are well-positioned to resume our growth trajectory and drive results upon resuming full operations.”

Diamondhead Casino Corporation Retains Colliers to Assist with Marketing and Financing

Diamondhead Casino Corporation has announced that it has retained Colliers to assist the Company in marketing and financing the development of its Diamondhead, Mississippi Property and/or to sell all or part of the Diamondhead Property. Colliers has prepared marketing materials to market and promote the Property and is now in the process of soliciting interested parties.

The Company owns, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mississippi Gaming Corporation, an approximate 400-acre tract of land on Interstate 10 in Diamondhead, Mississippi. The property fronts Interstate 10 for approximately two miles and fronts the Bay of St. Louis for approximately two miles. Over eighteen million vehicles pass the site yearly. The property is already zoned as a Special Use District-Waterfront Gaming District, which permits the development of a casino resort. In addition, the Mississippi Gaming Commission has granted Mississippi Gaming Corporation Gaming Site Approval on a fifty acre site located on the east side of the property.

Patrick Slagle, Vice President of Colliers in Washington, D.C., said: “We believe the Diamondhead site is one of the best remaining gaming sites in the entire country. Its location on Interstate 10, between Biloxi and New Orleans, coupled with the accessibility to the site provided by nearby airports makes it one of the most easily accessible gaming sites in the country. It is a 400-acre blank slate with over two miles of waterfront and ready to be developed as a mixed-use resort with a casino as an anchor and a two mile boardwalk. We know of nothing comparable and no other opportunity of this nature in the industry. With over eighteen million vehicles passing the site annually on Interstate 10, it is an ideal gaming location. The Gulf Coast region of the United States where this casino would be located, is one of the fastest growing gambling markets in the United States. We look forward to finding the perfect match for this outstanding location.”

Under its agreement with Colliers, the Company is free to continue discussions with other interested parties. Unless extended by the parties, the Agreement will terminate at the end of this year.

The Company also announced that its subsidiary, Mississippi Gaming Corporation (MGC), had entered into a Settlement Agreement with Cooperative Energy, a Mississippi Electric Cooperative, which had filed an eminent domain action against MGC, for $1,000,000 million in return for easements along the northern portion of the property. In October of 2023, Mississippi Gaming Corporation received $845,378 as part of the settlement amount. The parties are working on the wording of the easements. Once the easements are finalised and signed, Cooperative Energy will pay MGC the remaining amount due of $154,622.
