Century Casinos Inc has announced that their new racetrack and casino in Canada helped increase the company’s second quarter earnings. The Century Downs Racetrack & Casino is located in Calgary; however, Century Casinos is a Colorado Springs gaming company. On Friday they reported their April to June earnings are up 42 times based on statistics from a year ago. This year they have made $6.6 million or 27 cents per share versus the $156,000 or 1 cent a share of 2014. Revenue also rose by 20% to $37.9 million.
Century has a 70% stake in Century Downs Racetrack and Casino. It was opened last April. It also opened Century Bets Inc in May.
