The casino resumed boxing matches, an old tradition which had not been offered for many years in North Las Vegas. The first fight card was on September 30, 2008 with plans to continue offering matches featuring regional fighters.
The casino was purchased by Silver Nugget Gaming in January 2007 for $23.8 million, a price that included the Opera House Casino.
In 2008, the casino sold 12 acres (4.9 ha) of vacant land, which is in the North Las Vegas redevelopment zone, to the North Las Vegas. The resumption of boxing on September 30, 2008 came with television coverage from Henderson based Margate Entertainment, using their TVSBoxing.net service.
