Maverick Gaming™ is majority owned and was founded in 2017 by gaming industry veterans Eric Persson, who previously served as Global Senior Vice President of Slots at Las Vegas Sands Corporation and Justin Beltram, former Vice President of Slots at Bellagio and Marina Bay Sands. Together they bring over 30 years of gaming experience spanning gaming markets around the world including the Las Vegas Strip (The Venetian Resort, The Palazzo at The Venetian Resort, and Bellagio Hote & Casino), Macau (Sands China Limited), Singapore (Marina Bay Sands), and many regional markets in North America.
Maverick Gaming™ currently owns the Wendover Nugget and Red Garter Hotel in Wendover, NV and is in the process of acquiring the Red Lion Hotel & Casino, Gold Country Inn and High Desert Inn in Elko, NV and several properties located in the Pacific Northwest (subject to regulatory approval). Maverick’s portfolio includes more than 1,200 hotel rooms, 1,600 slot machines, and 47 table games.
Last September the company announced its intention to acquire Nevada Gold & Casinos, Inc. (NYSE: UWN). The company would expand its portfolio to include nine casino locations, seven of which are in the greater Seattle vicinity, and the other two located in the eastern Tri-Cities area. Combined, the facilities have approximately 120 table games. The transaction is pending the approval of shareholders and the Washington State Gambling Commission. It is expected to close in the first half of 2019.
