Item 1.01. Entry into Material Definitive Agreement.

Lake Charles Obligations

As previously reported, Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Pinnacle”) entered into an agreement with Harrah’s (the “Lake Charles Purchase Agreement”) to purchase Harrah’s Lake Charles, LLC (“HLC”) and Harrah’s Star Partnership (“HSP”), both of which are licensed to conduct riverboat gaming in Louisiana. On August 15, 2006, the Louisiana Gaming Control Board (“LGCB”) approved the transfer of the ownership interests in HLC and HSP to Pinnacle and relocation of the berth site for HLC, subject to certain conditions set forth in the Lake Charles Purchase Agreement. In connection with such approval, Pinnacle, HLC, HSP and LGCB entered into a Statement of Conditions for each of the licenses, imposing additional conditions upon each license.

Once Pinnacle acquires HLC, among the new conditions on the HLC license will be an obligation to invest a minimum of $350 million in a new casino development project named Sugarcane Bay, which was also approved by the LGCB on August 15, 2006 (the “Approved Project” or “Sugarcane Bay”). As approved by the LGCB, Sugarcane Bay is to provide certain non-gaming activities and amenities, including a 400-room hotel. Also among the additional conditions on the HLC license is an obligation to submit architectural blueprints to the LGCB, engage a contractor and begin construction on the Approved Project within certain timeframes. The Statement of Conditions also requires Pinnacle to complete the construction of Sugarcane Bay within 18 months of commencement of construction, which construction period may be extended, upon approval, by the LGCB.

Pinnacle and HSP also agreed to new conditions on the HSP license. Among these new conditions is an obligation on the part of Pinnacle or HSP to submit a detailed plan for rebuilding the operations of HSP within 75 days of approval of the transfer of the ownership interest in HSP.

The obligations of Pinnacle with respect to the HLC license are conditioned upon the approval of the change in berth site of the HLC riverboat by a majority of those voting on the referendum election required by Article XII, Section 6(C)(2) of the Louisiana Constitution (the “Local Referendum”) and upon the closing of the Lake Charles Purchase Agreement. As previously reported, the Lake Charles Purchase Agreement is also contingent on the successful closing of the Biloxi Purchase Agreement.

The foregoing description of the new conditions on the HLC and HSP licenses does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Statement of Conditions to Riverboat Gaming License of HLC and the Statement of Conditions to Riverboat Gaming License of HSP, which are attached as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2 hereto, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
