VICI Properties Acquires Rocky Gap Casino Resort 

VICI Properties, a gaming REIT, has completed the acquisition of an interest in the land and buildings associated with Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Maryland from Golden Entertainment for approximately $203.9 million in cash.  

The funding for the transaction came from a combination of cash on hand and proceeds from the partial settlement of forward equity sale agreements. 

Following the acquisition, Rocky Gap was added to the existing triple-net master lease agreement between VICI Properties and Century Casinos. The annualized rent increased by $15.5 million as part of the agreement. Additionally, the term of the Century Master Lease was extended, providing a full 15-year initial base lease term with four 5-year tenant renewal options.
