Century Casino Cripple Creek

Century Casino Inc.’s Cripple Creek casino and hotel.

Opening more off-track betting facilities in Canada and reopening all of its Polish casinos helped Century Casinos boost first-quarter revenue and profits, the Colorado Springs-based gaming company said Thursday.

Revenue in the January-to-March period grew 12.2% from a year earlier to $45.6 million, while earnings increased 15.3% during the same period to $1.07 million, or 4 cents a share.

Century began operating an off-track betting facility connected to its Century Mile Racetrack and Casino near Edmonton International Airport in January and all of its casinos in Poland have reopened after relicensing delays last year.
