Affinity Gaming Completes Sale of Three Colorado Casinos to Twin River Worldwide Holdings

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Affinity Gaming ("Affinity") today announced that it has completed the previously announced sale of the Golden Gates, Golden Gulch and Mardi Gras casino properties in Black Hawk, Colorado, to Twin River Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: TRWH) for $51 million, subject to customary adjustments. 

"We are pleased to complete the sale of these three casino properties as we sharpen our focus on Affinity's other key markets in Nevada and the Midwest," said Mary Beth Higgins, Chief Executive Officer of Affinity Gaming. "We remain committed to driving sustainable, long-term growth, while further enhancing Affinity as a local casino leader by continually improving the customer and guest experience at our properties."

Golden Gates, Golden Gulch and Mardi Gras are located in close proximity to one another along a half-mile strip of casino and casino-hotel properties in the historic mining town of Black Hawk, Colorado. Affinity acquired the three Black Hawk casinos in 2012 and over the past 8 years has worked to enhance the combined 36,000 square feet of gaming space, which today features nearly 20 table games, approximately 700 slots and a poker parlor. The properties also offer three restaurants and 24/7 bars, and one of the only parking garages in the market, with 700 spaces.

Affiliates of Z Capital Partners, the private equity management arm of Z Capital Group, closed their take-private acquisition of Affinity in 2017.
