Eldorado Resorts, Inc. is a gaming company based in Reno, Nevada.


Eldorado Resorts was formed on September 19, 2014, by the merger of MTR Gaming Group and Eldorado Holdco LLC.[2]

In November 2015, Eldorado bought Circus Circus Reno and the 50% stake in the Silver Legacy that it did not already own from MGM Resorts International for $73 million.[3][4]

In May 2017, Eldorado acquired Isle of Capri Casinos for $1.7 billion in cash, stock, and assumed debt, adding twelve casinos to its holdings.[5]

In February 2018, Eldorado agreed to sell Presque Isle Downs and Lady Luck Casino Vicksburg to Churchill Downs, Inc. for a total of $230 million.[6] The sale of the Lady Luck was later canceled because of antitrust concerns, and Eldorado instead agreed to sell the operations of Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin to Churchill Downs.[7]

In April 2018, the company agreed to acquire the operating business of Tropicana Entertainment for $640 million, adding seven casinos to its portfolio. Gaming and Leisure Properties would simultaneously purchase the real estate of six of the casinos and lease them to Eldorado for a total of $110 million per year.[8][9] In August 2018, Eldorado bought the Grand Victoria Casino in Illinois for $328 million.[10][11]
