TELLER HOUSE CASINO PLANS EXPANSION

 TELLER HOUSE CASINO PLANS EXPANSION
 CENTRAL CITY, Colo., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Teller House


Casino management announced today its plans to invest more than $6 million into renovating the second, third and fourth floors of the historic Teller House to accommodate additional casino gaming, restaurants and management offices. The expansion is scheduled to be completed by January 1993.
 The renovation of The Teller House infrastructure is a result of the market demand and increased competition, according to Massimo Schawalder, director of marketing.
 "When we opened The Teller House Casino last fall, we didn't expect so many casinos with such large capacities to be built in Central City.
 "Because the demand is so great, we've decided to cater to our customers and provide additional slot machines, blackjack and poker tables on the second floor. The buffet will close temporarily. Meals will continue to be served in the Atrium restaurant and in the Face Bar on the first floor," said Schawalder.
 This phase of the expansion is scheduled to be completed by the beginning of May 1992.
 In September, phase two will begin. The kitchen will be moved to a more convenient location. The buffet will be reopened and a restaurant will be added. The museum will be maintained and further refurbished. The construction will not affect the casino operations on the lower levels.
 The Teller House is one of Central City's oldest historic buildings. It was built as a hotel in June of 1872 and was then recognized as the finest hotel between St. Louis and San Francisco.
 In 1991, Tivolino of Switzerland, a European-based casino operator and hospitality company, signed a 31.5-year lease with the Central City Opera House Association to operate The Teller House Casino. During the summer of 1991, Tivolino invested more than $6 million for the historic preservation of The Teller House and restored the building to its 1800's Victorian splendor.
 Currently The Teller House has 168 slot machines, 82 video poker games and six blackjack tables.
 According to Schawalder, the restoration of The Teller House Casino's upper floors will be of the same quality as the renovation that was completed on the main floor for The Teller House Casino's grand opening.
