The agreement was finalized now as it was awaiting regulatory approval from the Washington State Gambling Commission. With the approval secured, the two gaming companies were able to proceed with their M&A deal.

Now that the deal was greenlit, Maverick Gaming acquired the entirety of Evergreen’s shares and assets. The agreement will significantly expand Maverick’s US presence, powering the casino company with several new properties.

In total, Evergreen Gaming currently owns four cardrooms across Washington. With the deal concluded, Maverick Gaming is now in possession of Chips Casino in Lakewood, Goldies Casino in Shoreline, Palace Casino in Lakewood and Riverside Casino in Tukwila.

In the wake of the acquisition, Maverick now owns a total of 31 casinos, hotels and manufacturing businesses across Colorado, Nevada and Washington. Its table games number has been scaled up to more than 360, while its slot machines now number 2,700. In terms of hospitality, Maverick boasts 1,300 rooms across its hotels with 50 restaurants available for its guests’ dining needs.

The company’s team currently numbers around 3,500 employees.

Persson concluded that Maverick will work hard to quickly integrate the newly-acquired business into its company. If everything goes as planned, he said, his company may see benefits from the purchase by January.

Maverick Gaming continues to consolidate its power as it pursues growth. Two months ago, the growing casino company announced a casino gaming solutions agreement with Acres Manufacturing Company, a renowned manufacturer of casino equipment and solutions. Per the deal, Acres agreed to supply the casino operator with its leading client management system and cashless gaming solutions.

Earlier this year, Maverick Gaming supported the launch of commercial sports betting in Washington, attracting the animosity of tribal entities.
