Contractor named for Foothills Oaks casino

12 September 2007

ACRAMENTO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Rudolph and Sletten, Inc. announced today that it has been named General Contractor for the $200 million Foothill Oaks Casino in Placerville, California.

Foothill Oaks Casino, a 270,000 square foot full service gaming facility located 35 miles east of Sacramento on U.S. Highway 50, will open in late 2008. Rudolph and Sletten's Sacramento Regional Office in Roseville is overseeing the project.

Foothill Oaks Casino is owned by the Shingle Springs Tribal Gaming Authority and is being developed and managed by Lakes Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:LACO). The gaming facility is a three level braced steel frame structure built on a steep hillside location. It includes an 88,000 square foot casino floor with 2,000 slot machines and over 100 gaming tables. The casino also has retail space and five full service restaurants, three casino bars, a childcare facility, and an arcade.

In addition, the project includes major infrastructure improvements to the Rancheria and a 1.2 million square foot, eight story parking structure with 3,100 parking spaces.

Rudolph and Sletten was selected for the project because of its experience in building California's Native Indian gaming and hospitality resorts, and its unique strategic partnership with the nation's largest builder of hotels and casinos, Perini Building Company, Inc. Rudolph and Sletten, a wholly owned subsidiary of Perini Corporation, is fast becoming a leading builder of Native American projects.

"Foothill Oaks Casino is a very exciting and complex project," said Kevin Englund, Rudolph and Sletten's Project Executive. "We look forward to being part of the team that will help the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians improve their reservation's civil infrastructure and generate a strong revenue potential."
