Colorado casinos boost fourth-quarter revenues for Affinity Gaming (LVRJ) April 1, 2013 at 9:43 am Howard Stutz, Las Vegas Review-Journal Casino operator Affinity Gaming grew revenues 4.6 percent in the fourth quarter, primarily through the company’s three casinos in Colorado that were purchased last year. The Las Vegas-based company, which owns the three Primm resorts and the off-Strip Terrible’s, said Monday total revenues increased to $97.7 million in the quarter that ended Dec. 31, compared with $93.4 million in the same quarter a year ago. Affinity said revenues of $6.9 million from the casinos in Black Hawk, Colo., the company acquired in an asset swap with Golden Gaming, helped offset a $1.4 million decrease in fuel sales and related revenues in the company’s Primm properties. Net income for the quarter was just $522,000, compared with $4.24 million in same quarter a year ago. For all of 2012, Affinity said net revenues grew 6.5 percent to $403.2 million. In addition to the asset swap with Golden, in which Affinity traded its Nevada slot machine route operation business, the company sold several casinos in Northern Nevada. “We spent a great deal of effort this year executing a transition plan that included entry into a new gaming market, divesting of our non-core operations, refinancing our long-term debt and most importantly, continually improving our properties and operating results,” Affinity Chief Executive Officer David Ross said in a statement.
