Foundation Gaming Group receives Mississippi Gaming Commission approval to operate two Tunica casinos

18 November 2011

GULFPORT, Mississippi -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Foundation Gaming Group, LLC announced today that the Mississippi Gaming Commission has approved a structure to allow the seamless transition and uninterrupted operations of the Resorts and Bally's Casinos in Tunica, MS.

“We are very excited about the transaction and believe our team’s presence and experience in Mississippi, coupled with what will be a singular focus on these properties, will allow us to maximize the potential of these properties”

The transaction is subject to completion of the foreclosure process by a lender to the current owner of the casinos, which is contemplated under a settlement agreement finalized earlier this month.

Our team has tremendous chemistry with very complementary skill sets, which makes us ideal for this type of transaction,” stated Allan Solomon, Principal and Chairman of Foundation Gaming Group, LLC.

“We are very excited about the transaction and believe our team’s presence and experience in Mississippi, coupled with what will be a singular focus on these properties, will allow us to maximize the potential of these properties,” said Greg Guida, Principal and Chief Executive Officer of Foundation Gaming Group. “The operations of the properties will not be impacted by this transaction and it will give the properties a fresh start heading into the new year.”
