guests in the greater Columbus market have reacted favorably to our exciting blend of racing and gaming
entertainment amenities,” said Gary Carano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eldorado. “Construction
of The Brew Brothers microbrewery and restaurant, which will serve as the cornerstone of our Phase II
property expansion, reflects our commitment to extend the Carano family’s legacy of providing guests with
diverse food and beverage options across our property portfolio. Eldorado’s innovative Brew Brothers concept
has proven to be very popular with our guests in Reno and we expect it to further elevate the level of unique amenities that we offer guests at Scioto Downs.

“Providing unique dining and entertainment experiences to our guests is one of our strategic priorities and we
intend to continue to selectively invest in return‐focused property enhancements that can drive long‐term
growth across Eldorado’s portfolio. Our Phase II expansion plan for Scioto Downs Racino also includes a
recently opened outdoor smoking patio that features 60 VLTs that has been well received by our guests. We
also plan to extend our food and beverage options at the property with a new bakery and snack bar that will
