Buffalo Thunder Gets New Management

Santafe.com - September 26, 2011

"We are excited for this opportunity to work with the Pueblo of Pojoaque..."

Full House Resorts, a Las Vegas, NV based casino consulting group, has assumed management of the Pueblo of Pojoaque’s gaming operations, including Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino, the Cities of Gold Casino and the Sports Bar, all located in Pojoaque, about 15 miles north of Santa Fe. The announcement was made by George Rivera, tribal governor.

Full House owns, develops and manages gaming facilities in eight states and three countries and its Chief Executive Officer Andre Hilliou has said of the new management agreement, “We are excited for this opportunity to work with the Pueblo of Pojoaque to help them improve the operations of their great gaming assets,” to which he added, “we believe there is a tremendous opportunity to improve the performance of these high-quality facilities and assist an already strong team.”

In Pojoaque Governor George Rivera’s words, “The restructuring will enable us to continue operating the finest casino and resort in New Mexico with an improved capital structure and sound financial condition.”

CEO of the Pueblo of Pojoaque Business Corporations Allen Mosley stated “This has been the resort’s best year in its three year history in terms of hotel occupancy, group business and solid growth to the gaming segment. We look forward to Full House’s management team continuing and improving upon our current progress.”

For me, as the Culture Vulture that I am, I am glad that the incredible collection of American Indian Indian Art that Governor Rivera has assembled will remain the focal point of the resort portion of Buffalo Thunder. Even if you are not into gambling, you should visit Buffalo Thunder for the excellent restaurants and the art.
