We see great opportunity in Northern Nevada and the Reno Tahoe market, and are actively seeking more distribution there.” Maverick is also in a pending transaction to purchase the Eldorado Shreveport, which is located a few hours west of Dallas. Eldorado plans to sell the Louisiana resort casino for $230m.
