Even though we acquired the three casinos six months ago we are already seeing positive results from the changes we've implemented so far. One of the most important measures we have taken was the introduction of a player tracking system at each property, which we said would be complete by the calendar year end. This system allows us to take better care of our guests, lets us better analyze our business decisions at each property and provides us an excellent database for targeted marketing and promotional programs. All of this has been accomplished without altering the friendly and intimate experience that our guests have come to expect," said Robert Sturges, CEO of Nevada Gold.
On May 12, the company completed its acquisition of three casinos in the state of Washington. The casinos are The Crazy Moose Casino located in Pasco, Coyote Bob's Roadhouse Casino located in Kennewick, and the Crazy Moose Casino located in Mountlake Terrace in close proximity to Seattle. Combined, the facilities have a total of 40 table games including blackjack, Spanish 21 and other popular banked table games.
Additional banked table games are permitted along with poker and pull tabs. As of January 1, 2009, the maximum bet for each facility was increased from us$ 200 to us$ 300 and the law was changed to allow casinos to be open 24 rather than 18 hours per day.
