On January 27, 2010, the Missouri Gaming Commission (the MGC) issued a preliminary order for disciplinary action (the Order) against the President Riverboat Casino-Missouri, Inc. (PRC-MO), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. and the operator of President Casino. The Order provides that it is proposed that the MGC revoke the license of PRC-MO. The MGC provided in its Order that there has been a decline in gaming revenue and admission fees of PRC-MO as a result of the Companys management of PRC-MO, which caused PRC-MO to be subject to disciplinary action. The Company is evaluating what action it should take in view of this Order. A copy of the MGCs order is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report.
