Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 9, 2008, Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (“Pinnacle”) and Allianz Global Risks US Insurance Company (“Allianz”) entered into a settlement agreement to settle Pinnacle’s lawsuit against Allianz in connection with the hurricane-related damage to Pinnacle’s former casino in Biloxi, Mississippi and its Boomtown New Orleans casino in Harvey, Louisiana (the “Settlement Agreement”). Allianz has agreed to pay Pinnacle an additional $48 million on or before June 8, 2008 in exchange for a full and final release of all claims and a dismissal with prejudice of Pinnacle’s lawsuit against Allianz. Allianz’s payment will come from its $50 million policy in the coverage layer between $100 million and $150 million of total coverage. Allianz had previously paid Pinnacle $5 million, which brings Allianz’s total payment on the claim to $53 million. The $3 million payment above Allianz’s $50 million policy limit represents an interest payment.

In February 2008, Pinnacle had reached a settlement with Arch Specialty Insurance Company (“Arch”), whereby Arch agreed to pay Pinnacle approximately $36.8 million, which amounts were received in March 2008. Pinnacle continues to pursue its claims against the remaining defendant insurance carrier for its respective share of Pinnacle’s total hurricane-related damage and consequential loss, which Pinnacle values at more than $297 million. The remaining carrier, RSUI Indemnity Company, provides $50 million of coverage pari passu with Arch for the $100 million layer between $150 million and $250 million of total coverage and is the sole carrier for the layer of coverage between $250 million and $400 million of total coverage.

As of May 12, 2008, Pinnacle has received payments or payment commitments totaling approximately $191.75 million from its insurers relative to these claims, including the settlement payment to be received from Allianz.
