Highlight of Business Operations:

For the three months ended July 25, 2010, casino revenues increased $3.4 million at our Pompano property, $0.9 million at our Waterloo property and included $5.3 million from our newly acquired Vicksburg casino. These increases were offset by decreased casino revenues at our Black Hawk and Quad Cities properties of $6.5 million reflecting the impact of competition and decreases at our other properties of $6.2 million primarily due to current economic conditions.

Casino - Casino operating expenses increased $0.3 million, or 0.9%, for the three months ended July 25, 2010, as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. Excluding casino costs of $0.8 million incurred by our newly acquired Vicksburg casino, our casino operating expenses would have decreased $0.5 million. This net decrease reflects costs reductions in casino expense at most of our properties offset by a slight increase in casino expenses at our Pompano property following the expansion of gaming hours effective July 1, 2010.
