    Reno, NV - Atlantis Casino and Resort Spa

Monarch Casino & Resort, Inc., through its subsidiary, Golden Road Motor Inn, Inc., owns and operates the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, a hotel-casino facility in Reno, Nev. which features approximately 61,000 square feet of casino space; 824 guest rooms; eight food outlets; two espresso and pastry bars; an approximate 30,000 square foot health spa and salon with an enclosed year-round pool; two retail outlets offering clothing and traditional gift shop merchandise; an 8,000 square-foot family entertainment center; and approximately 52,000 square feet of banquet, convention and meeting room space. The casino features approximately 1,450 slot and video poker machines; approximately 38 table games, including blackjack, craps, roulette, and others; a race and sports book; a 24-hour live keno lounge and a poker room. The Company and its predecessors have operated a facility on the Atlantis site since 1972.

Atlantis traces its roots in Reno to 1972, when a 142-room motel was purchased by David Farahi and his brother-in-law. The three sons of David graduated from universities in the Bay Area, working at the motel during their school vacations. By 1976, their father transferred ownership to them and their sister, initially known as the Golden Road Motel.

In 1983, the motel began operating as a Travelodge franchise. In April 1991, the property became Clarion Hotel Casino a growth path escalated for the company. In 1993, an IPO took the company public. The IPO helped finance the addition of another hotel tower, and a couple of years later, another expansion added significant additions to the property. The Farahi family was one of the few in the industry to show growth even while northern Nevada gaming was declining. In April 1996, the property became Atlantis Casino Resort. Continuous property improvements and a focus on performance make Atlantis Casino Resort Spa one of the most dynamic companies in the region today.

Today, John Farahi, CEO, leads the way and has been Co-Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer of Monarch Casino & Resort, Inc., the parent company of Atlantis, since its inception. From 1973 until June 1993, John was President, Director and General Manager of Golden Road Motel.
