Mardi Gras Casino & Resort has been acquired by an American company.
US.- Delaware North, a New York’s gaming company, has allegedly acquired the Mardi Gras Casino & Resort, located in Cross Lanes, West Virginia. The announcement was released this week by the American company, which owns and operates several casinos and gaming venues throughout the United States.
Delaware North gaming company and current owners of the Virginia casino, Hartman & Tyner Inc., has reached an agreement signed yesterday. Mardi Gras, located near the Cross Lanes exit of Interstate 64, features table games, a poker room, slot machines, live greyhound racing, and off-track betting for both greyhound and horse racing. It also features several restaurants and a 150-room hotel. The track expanded its casino offerings in 2008, as casino gambling was legalized in 2007.
“As a successful family-run company with a long history of operating exceptional gaming and entertainment venues, including West Virginia, we’re excited about operating a second casino resort in the state and expanding our portfolio of gaming assets,” Brian Hansberry, president of Delaware North’s gaming business, said in a statement. “We look forward to working with Hartman & Tyner and their employees at Mardi Gras toward a smooth transition and in becoming part of the greater Charleston community.”
