Colorado Springs headquartered gaming operator Century Casinos has announced that it will be temporarily closing its Polish casinos until January.

The closure is said to comply with quarantines issued by the Polish government to contain the spread of COVID-19, which continued to evolve rapidly.

On December 28, Poland entered a national quarantine that included the closure of hotels, ski slopes and shopping malls as the country’s health system struggled with the second wave of the virus as new daily cases reached over 27,000 a day at its peak in November, according to Reuters

The Poland operating segment contributed four per cent of the company’s adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Within its statement, the company noted “due to the pandemic’s current scope it will adversely impact the company at least through the first half of 2021.”

The announcement comes in the same month that Century Casinos finalised an agreement with Rush Street Entertainment to become the company’s second interactive gaming operator partner in West Virginia.

In partnership with the Vici Properties owned and Century Casinos operated Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort, RSI is to take its BetRivers brand live in the Mountain State.

Subject to licensing and regulatory approval by the West Virginia Lottery, RSI intends to commence operations in the second quarter of 2021.
