PCI Gaming, doing business as Wind Creek Hospitality, announced an agreement to acquire Magic City Casino in Miami. The announcement follows an affirmative decision by the Florida Gaming Control Commission (FLGC) permitting the transfer of the assets and the existing gaming license held by Magic City owners to PCI Gaming wholly-owned subsidiary Gretna Racing.
“We are excited to grow our footprint in another major metropolitan area, this time in Miami, Florida. Our expansions in Pennsylvania, Illinois, and now Florida provide us the ability to take care of and grow opportunities for our Tribe. We look forward to becoming a valued partner in the Miami community,” said Stephanie Bryan, Tribal Chair & CEO of Wind Creek parent Poarch Band of Creek Indians.
“Southern Florida is a natural connection from our properties in Aruba & Curacao, our properties in Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. With close proximity to Miami International Airport, the location is fantastic for players from all Wind Creek properties, and gives Miami locals an easy way to experience the Wind Creek brand everywhere we operate,” Jay Dorris, CEO and President of Wind Creek, said.
Leaders from both Wind Creek and Magic City expect the transaction to close later this Spring. Wind Creek will continue to operate Magic City Casino in the near term with very few changes. Wind Creek plans to include Magic City players in the broader Wind Creek Rewards and Express Offers loyalty programs by the end of 2023.
