 "Primadonna Resorts is a company with great potential and an excellent management group. I am looking forward to serving on the board," comments Swarts.
 Alan Maiss has been involved in the gaming and securities industries for nearly 26 years. He was director for Bally Gaming International Inc. and president, chief operating officer and director for subsidiary Bally Gaming Inc. in Las Vegas and Reno for over nine years.
 He held similar positions with Jackpot Enterprises Inc. and its subsidiary Jackpot Gaming Inc.
 Maiss is a trustee emeritus for the University of Nevada, Reno Foundation and past director of Nevada Coin Operators Association.
 "I am pleased to be chosen to serve on the board of such a dynamic growing company with a proven management team and thriving business," says Maiss.
 Primadonna Resorts Inc. owns and operates two highly successful hotel-casinos, Whiskey Pete's Hotel & Casino and the Primadonna Resort & Casino, located on either side of Interstate 15 at the Nevada/California border.
 The company is developing a $90 million Western-themed hotel-casino, currently under construction, which will include 46,000 square feet of casino space, a special events arena, a state-of-the-art roller coaster, a water log ride and a ghost town attraction. The yet-to-be-named third property will be connected to the other hotel-casinos by Western-style trains. Plans call for the new hotel-casino to be completed in the summer of 1994.
 Whiskey Pete's is under construction to include the addition of a 17-story, 537-room hotel tower and a 600-space parking structure to complement a 14,000-square-foot casino and public area expansion. The expansion is being completed in two phases (summer and late 1993).
