Maverick Gaming, a fast-growing US casino operator, has announced the launch of its new Ace’s Poker room in the city of Mountlake Terrace, Washington.
This new poker brand is the first in the state and represents the continuous investment in Maverick Gaming’s strategy to redevelop and connect its properties across its regional footprint.
Based in Kirkland, Washington, Maverick Gaming has acquired numerous unique brands and properties in Nevada, Colorado and Washington.
The multi-year plan is to upgrade the physical infrastructure, improve the overall gaming/guest experience and rebrand as Maverick Casino and Hotel, Ace’s Poker, Dragon Tiger Casino or Macau Legend.
The integration of its properties showcases Maverick Gaming’s investment in local communities, including its long-term commitment as a community partner through its employee-led philanthropic arm, Maverick Cares.
“I am excited to continue investing in our local communities by offering great jobs in a new venue for entertainment in Mountlake Terrace,” said Eric Persson, CEO and majority owner of Maverick Gaming.
“Growing up in Hoquiam, it was a dream of mine to build a gaming company in my home state of Washington. Ace’s Poker is designed to be a destination of choice for those who like to play cards responsibly.”
Maverick Gaming’s state-of-the-art property will debut with over $2m in renovations, highlighting an investment in the local economy and workers.
Ace’s Poker will employ 90 staff from its union-led workforce (Maverick Gaming is the largest private sector employer of Teamsters Local 117 members in the state of Washington).
Each facility will continue to be an integral part of Maverick Gaming’s implementation of rigorous problem gambling policies, which include a company-wide self-exclusion practice – was one of the first in the state.
