Item 7.01Regulation FD Disclosure.

David Farahi, the Company's Chief Operations Officer during the financial presentation at the 2020 Annual Meeting,  reported that the Monarch Casino Black Hawk, which shut down on March 16, 2020 in response to the Colorado governor’s order in an effort to contain the COVID-19 spread, is expected to re-open on June 17, 2020. 

The information under this caption Item 7.01 shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT ON FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

When used in this report and elsewhere by management from time to time, the words "believes," "anticipates," "expects," "estimates," and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements with respect to the Company's expectations regarding the opening of Monarch Casino Black Hawk. Certain important factors, including, without limitation, receipt of governmental and regulatory permits and approvals, litigation risks and construction risks could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from those expressed in its forward-looking statements. Further information on potential factors which could affect our expansion and development activities is included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date thereof. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly release any revisions to such forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof.

Because of the inherent uncertainties related to construction, construction completion, impact of litigation, and the need to obtain certain governmental permits and approvals, among other things, the Company refers the readers hereof to the "Risk Factors" set forth in Item 1A. Risk Factors, of its Annual Report on SEC Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, and subsequent risk factors listed in its other filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
