Hard Rock seeks gaming license today

Staff Reports

The owners and operators of the future Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe will go before the Nevada Gaming Control Board this morning seeking a recommendation for an unlimited gaming license and a key employee to manage the Stateline property.

Neva One, LLC, is seeking a recommendation for approval for a gaming license to operate the casino. WG-Stateline, LLC, a subsidiary of Warner Gaming, LLC, managed by William Warner, is also seeking a recommendation for approval as a key employee to manage the casino.

The former Horizon casino has been closed since spring for a major remodel and is expected to be open later this year. It is owned by Park Heritage, which is controlled by members of the Park family. Warner Gaming has been engaged to manage the historic Lake Tahoe property.

The three-member gaming control board is being asked to make a recommendation to the five-member Nevada Gaming Commission, which will consider the applications on Oct. 23.

Today’s meeting starts at 9 a.m. at the Gaming Control Board offices, 1919 College Parkway in Carson City.

The Park family has a long history in the South Lake Tahoe gaming market as lessors to Horizon, Harvey’s and Montbleu-Caesars. Their investment in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe not only represents the first major renovation in nearly a decade, but also brings a major international brand to the market.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe will be a fully integrated gaming resort offering over 500 slot machines and a wide variety of table games. The facility will include a 539-room Hard Rock Hotel, a 25,000 plus square foot casino, the world-famous retail store, multiple restaurants and bars, the largest outdoor pool experience in South Lake Tahoe, and an assortment of live-entertainment both indoors and out. Design and development plans for the $60 million project are underway and the property is anticipated to open ski season.
