Century Casinos has declared a spectacular increase in revenue in a dynamic quarter highlighted by major changes and difficulties, despite confronting a severe fall in net profit. In the second quarter of the year, the famous casino operator announced an amazing record revenue of $136.8 million, indicating its capability for development and adaptation in a continually moving market.
Century Casinos co-CEOs Erwin Haitzmann and Peter Hoetzinger credited the revenue increase to the smart acquisition of Nugget Casino Resort.
