St. Jean brings more than 25 years of highly successful hospitality and tribal gaming experience to the Chief Operating Officer position at Morongo

The Morongo Band of Mission Indians has named longtime tribal gaming executive Richard St. Jean as the new chief operating officer overseeing the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa near Palm Springs, CA.

With more than 25 years of successful hospitality and casino experience, St. Jean is a respected and highly accomplished executive who is uniquely qualified to steer the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa forward to realize the substantial growth opportunities that lie ahead.

“Richard comes to Morongo at an exciting time and brings with him a successful track record of operational excellence and proven leadership,” said Morongo Tribal Chairman Robert Martin. “We are confident that his vision, deep industry expertise, and innovative spirit will fuel the next chapter of prosperity at Morongo while advancing our ongoing commitment to consistently exceeding the expectations of our guests.”

Poised to celebrate its 15th anniversary in December 2019, the towering 27-story Morongo Casino Resort & Spa is currently undergoing a renovation and expansion project to add elegant new décor and guest amenities, including a beautiful 65,000-square-foot expansion opening in mid-2020. Morongo recently celebrated the arrival of three new elevated dining venues; the chic Pink Coffee patisserie and coffee house, the eclectic Good Times Cafe gastropub and the sublime Mozen Asian Kitchen.

“I am very excited to be joining Morongo’s exceptionally talented team of hospitality and gaming professionals as we welcome a new era of innovation and growth that will further strengthen the casino’s position as a premier gaming and resort destination,” St. Jean said. “As a nationally recognized leader in tribal gaming, Morongo has a proud legacy of protecting tribal sovereignty and creating new opportunity for Indian Country, and I am honored to be a part of that history. ”

St. Jean’s career has stretched from the Waldorf Astoria in New York City to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas where he held several management positions. He spent 17 years at Station Casinos where he served as general manager for multiple gaming properties before becoming President of Native American Gaming. In this role, he oversaw the programming and design of Stations’ four tribal gaming projects, as well as the operations and $720 million expansion of Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, CA and the $200 million launch of the Gun Lake Casino in Wayland, MI.

St. Jean transitioned to Penn National Gaming in 2011 where he opened two properties in Ohio and the Jamul Casino in San Diego County.

St. Jean replaces John James, who departed to take a similar position at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT.

Two of the Nation’s Top Sportsbooks to Debut in Colorado

Twin River Worldwide Holdings, Inc. today announced separate market access partnerships with DraftKings Inc. and FanDuel Group, giving sports fans in Colorado access to award-winning sportsbook products.

These partnerships combine Twin River Worldwide Holdings’ nationwide experience in gaming and casino operations with market-leading sports betting expertise and globally recognizable brands. Colorado is the fifth state in the United States where the FanDuel Sportsbook platform will be available and is the sixth state to offer the DraftKings’ Sportsbook platform.

As announced last Friday, Twin River Worldwide Holdings completed the acquisition of Golden Gates, Golden Gulch and Mardi Gras casinos in Black Hawk, Colorado. With the completion of this acquisition, Twin River also acquired the right to three sports gaming licenses in Colorado, leading to the creation of these two partnerships. Twin River will retain the third license for its own future use.

“Obtaining the right to three sports gaming licenses in Colorado will expand our footprint in the state well beyond our Arapahoe Park racetrack and off-track betting network,” said George Papanier, President and Chief Executive Officer of Twin River. “These newly-formed partnerships with DraftKings and FanDuel allow us to provide an unmatched sports betting experience to Colorado, not only with their mobile betting access, but also with an exciting DraftKings retail sportsbook location inside one of our newly acquired casinos.”

“Coast to coast, DraftKings is committed to providing states across the country with the ultimate experience in legal sports betting,” said Ezra Kucharz, DraftKings chief business officer. “Twin River is committed to providing exciting, real-time gaming opportunities, and we look forward to working alongside them to introduce Colorado sports fans to our award-winning product.”

“Twin River has been engaged in sports betting since the beginning in Rhode Island and Mississippi, and they are an ideal partner as we continue to enter states that open up online and mobile sports betting,” said Matt King, CEO, FanDuel Group. “Colorado has a sensible framework for sports betting, and we are excited to partner with a renowned gaming company like Twin River to bring our market-leading online sports betting experience to Colorado sports fans.”
