Three Decades of Excellence in Gaming
As a company, we have never performed layoffs, filed for bankruptcy or permanently closed any casino in our 30 years of operations.
Not even during COVID-19. We gave employees paid leave.
Today, we operate ten casino gaming properties in markets that are very similar to Pope County.
Companies planning to open casinos often meet with our hospitality consulting arm to leverage our reputation and expertise.
Long-Term Financial Strength
We operate with no long-term debt, and through cash on hand and access to our existing $300M line of credit. We are able to complete the project without the need to seek additional financing in today’s turbulent debt markets.
Our business diversification efforts add to our strength and stability. Our Cherokee Federal division is growing at a record-breaking pace. Our innovative health security products, services and experts help our country fight COVID-19.
Studying local markets contributes to our consistent success. We worked with industry leading gaming advisors to help us bring the best possible casino resort to Pope County.
We partner with economists to measure our positive economic impact on the communities we serve. Legends Resort & Casino Arkansas’ 10-year local economic impact will be $3.15 B+.
An Outstanding Community Partner
The future is legendary for Pope County. The special relationship we have built with this community is made to last.
At our downtown Russellville office, we have welcomed thousands of visitors and identified opportunities to fulfill our promise to be a good community partner.
We are honored to provide care packages to local first responders facing the COVID-19 pandemic.
We sponsor legendary local musicians in our live music series at The Old Bank in Russellville.
The Legends Community Update in Russellville was a huge success. Our leadership team presented our latest plans and answered dozens of questions from the community. There wasn’t an empty seat to be found.
You are our friends and neighbors, and you have welcomed us warmly. By listening to you, we found ways to make Legends Resort & Casino even better.
We are the right choice for Pope County.
But don't just take it from us. We are proud of the relationships we have built with local officials in the communities we operate. Hear more from them.
We are grateful for the many letters of support and endorsements we have received from the Arkansas community. Pope County Judge Ben Cross, the Pope County Quorum Court and five Pope County mayors have written on our behalf.
