Full House Resorts’ Colorado Casino Chamonix to Open on December 26, 2023
Full House Resorts Incorporated, a casino developer & operator based in the Summerlin South area of Nevada, is optimistic that its Chamonix Casino Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado, will be up and running before the end of this year.
According to a statement given by the operator, the Chamonix Casino Hotel in Cripple Creek will open on 26th of December this year. The upcoming facility will feature a state-of-the-art gaming space and restaurants familiar to Las Vegas visitors.
The given time line is somewhat longer than the mid-2023 opening that some analysts had previously been expecting. The operator didn’t utter any word about the delay in the opening of the gambling-friendly facility. However, market experts are of the view that high prices of commodities and tight labour pools caused the delay.
Dan Lee, CEO of Full House Resorts said, “On that day (Dec. 26), we expect to open with a near-complete experience, with all three of our hotel towers, our new casino, fine dining restaurant, and parking garage. We look forward to welcoming our first guests to what we believe will be the most unique casino destination in Colorado.”
Along with Waukegan, Ill.-based American Place, Chamonix Casino in Colorado will likely be the most posh and biggest revenue driver in the expanding portfolio of Full House Resorts Inc. Food and beverage will generate nongaming revenue as venue is expected to attract many visitors who want access to fine dining options in the area.
Well aware of this fact, the operator has signed Barry Dakake to oversee the high-end eatery at the upcoming Chamonix Casino Resort. Dakake, the chef behind the now-closed N9NE Steakhouse at the Palms, is a well-known figure in the gaming circles.
As already mentioned above, American Place and Chamonix will likely be the primary long-term drivers of revenue for the operator. Some market experts believe that either venue will be larger in top line terms than the company’s current portfolio combined.
At present in Illinois, Full House Resorts Inc. is operating a temporary version of American Place, and the planned permanent version of the casino-hotel is expected to will live up to gamers’ high expectations. Since its opening in February, the temporary facility has generated $10.4 million in sales and adjusted property earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation & amortization (EBITDA) of $3.6 million.
