THE SANDS REGENT ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF COPA CASINO IN GULFPORT, MISSISSIPPI

 RENO, Nev., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sands Regent (NASDAQ: SNDS) announced today that the Copa Casino in Gulfport, Miss., has been opened. The facility was opened to the public in the early evening of Sept. 14, 1993 and was well received despite very little advance publicity of the opening. As is the policy of the Mississippi Gaming Commission, gaming will be operated for the next 48 hours while under observation of gaming commission personnel. Gaming will then be discontinued for approximately 2 days to allow for the review of the company's policies and procedures by the Mississippi Gaming Commission. At such time as the Gaming Commission is adequately satisfied about the Copa's gaming policies and procedures, a permanent opening will be permitted.
 The Sands Regent owns and operates a 1,000 room hotel/casino located in Reno, Nev. and is a 40 percent owner and managing partner of the Copa Casino in Gulfport, Miss.
