OPERATING RESULTS SUMMARY


Our operating results may be affected by, among other things, competitive factors, gaming tax increases, the commencement of new competitive gaming operations, construction at our facilities, general public sentiment regarding travel, overall economic conditions and governmental policies affecting the disposable income of our patrons and weather conditions affecting our properties.

The following significant factors and trends should be considered in analyzing our operating performance:

Atlantis: Our business strategy is to maximize revenues, operating income and cash flow primarily through our casino, food and beverage operations and hotel operations. During the recessionary periods of 2008 and 2009 and after, we expanded and upgraded the facility. With quality gaming, hotel and dining products, we believe the Atlantis is well positioned to benefit from future macro and local economic growth. Several national businesses have announced plans to expand or relocate operations to Northern Nevada. While such economic activity could ultimately drive additional revenue and profit at Atlantis, we are experiencing the more immediate effect of increased labor costs which, combined with continued aggressive marketing programs by our competitors, have applied upward pressure on Atlantis operating costs.

Monarch Casino Black Hawk: Since the acquisition of Monarch Casino Black Hawk in April 2012, our focus has been to maximize casino and food and beverage revenues while upgrading the existing facility and laying the groundwork for the major expansion that we plan. There is currently no hotel on the property. In October 2012, we began a project to redesign and upgrade the existing Monarch Casino Black Hawk facility. In September 2013, we opened a new buffet, which was an important step in our ongoing process of redesigning and upgrading the existing Monarch Casino Black Hawk facility. In December 2013, we began a project to remodel and upgrade the casino. To minimize disruption, we staged the work in three equal phases. The first phase was completed and opened in August 2014. The second phase was completed and opened in March 2015 and the final phase was completed and opened in August 2015. In the fourth quarter of 2013, we began work on a multi-phased expansion of the Monarch Casino Black Hawk, which involves construction of a new parking structure, demolition of the existing parking structure and followed by construction of a new hotel tower and casino expansion on the site where the existing parking structure currently sits (see "Master Planned Expansion of the Monarch Casino Black Hawk"). The planned nine-story parking structure will increase total parking on site from approximately 500 spaces to approximately 1,500 spaces. Once completed, the Monarch Casino Black Hawk expansion will nearly double the casino space and will add a 23-story hotel tower with approximately 500 guest rooms and suites, an upscale spa and pool facility, three additional restaurants (increasing the total to four), additional bars, a new parking structure and associated support facilities. We currently expect completion of the entire expansion in the first quarter of 2019.

CAPITAL SPENDING AND DEVELOPMENT

We seek to continuously upgrade and maintain our facilities in order to present a fresh, high quality product to our guests.

Capital expenditures for the each of the six-month periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 totaled approximately $14.8 million. During the six month period ended June 30, 2016, our capital expenditures related primarily to the major redesign and upgrade of the Toucan Charlie's Buffet, improvements to new additional parking spaces at Atlantis, continued work on the new garage structure at Monarch Casino Black Hawk as well as acquisition of gaming equipment to upgrade and replace existing equipment in the Atlantis and Monarch Casino Black Hawk. During the six month period ended June 30, 2015, our capital expenditures related primarily to the redesign and upgrade of the Monarch Casino Black Hawk facility as well as acquisition of gaming equipment to upgrade and replace existing equipment in the Atlantis and the Monarch Casino Black Hawk.

Master Planned Expansion of the Monarch Black Hawk

The Company has a master plan to expand and convert the Monarch Casino Black Hawk into a full-scale casino resort (the "Black Hawk Expansion Plan").

In October 2012, we began an extensive redesign and upgrade of the existing facility at Monarch Casino Black Hawk. We have upgraded the property's food and beverage operations (including an all-new buffet) and completed the redesign and upgrade of the existing casino floor. Our plans also call for the exterior of the existing facility to be refinished to match the master planned expansion which is expected to cost approximately $16-$18 million and is expected to be funded primarily from operating cash flow.

We have also begun work on the Black Hawk Expansion Plan. The excavation and foundation work for the facility's new parking structure has been completed and construction of the new parking structure is well underway. The new 9-story parking structure will increase on-site parking from approximately 500 spaces to approximately 1,500 spaces. Construction of the new parking structure began in the first quarter of 2015 and construction is anticipated to be completed in the third quarter of 2016. Upon completion of the new parking structure, the existing parking structure will be razed to make room for the new hotel tower and casino expansion. The remaining cost of the parking structure-related work is expected to be approximately $3-$6 million, which we expect to fund primarily from operating cash flow and, to a lesser extent, from our Amended Credit Facility.

We expect to begin construction of the new hotel tower and casino expansion during the first quarter of 2017. The new 23-story tower will nearly double the existing casino space and will include approximately 500 hotel rooms, an upscale spa and pool facility, three additional restaurants and additional bars. Tower floors will be opened as they are finished beginning with the casino expansion and additional restaurants. We currently expect completion of the entire tower in the first quarter of 2019 at a total cost of approximately $229-$234 million. The cost is expected to be financed through a combination of operating cash flow and funds from the $250-million Amended Credit Facility, which the Company secured on July 20, 2016.



RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


Comparison of Operating Results for the Three-Month Periods Ended June 30, 2016 and 2015

For the three months ended June 30, 2016, our net income totaled $5.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.1 million, or $0.29 per diluted share for the same period in 2015, reflecting an 11.7% increase in net income and a 10.3% increase in diluted earnings per share. Net revenues totaled $54.6 million in the second quarter of 2016, an increase of $4.6 million compared to the second quarter of 2015. Income from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2016 totaled $8.9 million compared to $8.0 million for the same period in 2015.

Casino revenue increased 8.9% in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015. Casino operating expense as a percentage of casino revenue decreased from 42.1% in the second quarter of 2015 to 41.5% in the same quarter of 2016 primarily as a result of the increase in casino revenue combined with operating cost efficiencies.

Food and beverage revenue for the second quarter of 2016 increased 11.2% over the second quarter of 2015, due to a 6.7% increase in average revenue per cover and a 4.2% increase in covers. Food and beverage operating expense as a percentage of food and beverage revenue increased in the second quarter of 2016 to 41.2% compared to 39.5% for the same period in 2015 primarily as a result of higher salaries and wages expense.




                                       14

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Table of Contents

Hotel revenue increased 3.5% due to a higher average daily room rate ("ADR") of $82.93 in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $79.45 in the second quarter of 2015 offset by a slightly lower hotel occupancy of 89.2% during the second quarter of 2016 compared to 90.3% during the second quarter of 2015. Revenue per Available Room ("REVPAR"), calculated by dividing total room revenue (less service charges, if any) by total rooms available, was $80.47 and $77.73 for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Hotel operating expense as a percentage of hotel revenue increased to 30.9% in the second quarter of 2016 as compared to 28.8% for the comparable prior year period primarily due to higher salaries and wages expense.

Other revenue increased 6.0% in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015 driven primarily by increased arcade, spa and retail revenue.

Promotional allowances as a percentage of gross revenues decreased to 17.8% during the second quarter of 2016 compared to 18.0% in the comparable 2015 quarter. This decrease was primarily due to higher revenues.

Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A") expense increased to $14.5 million in the second quarter of 2016 from $13.3 million in the second quarter of 2015 primarily due to higher salaries, wages and benefits expenses, higher rental expenses from the parking lot lease at Atlantis (see Note 5 "Related Party Transactions") and higher marketing expenses. As a percentage of net revenue, SG&A expense was flat at 26.6%.

Depreciation and amortization expense decreased to $3.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to $4.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 primarily as a result of a decrease in monthly depreciation expense of the existing parking structure following the revision in the expected date of early removal of the parking structure from service in relation to the Monarch Black Hawk expansion project.

Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized decreased to $60 thousand in the second quarter of 2016 from $181 thousand in the second quarter of 2015 as a result of lower average outstanding borrowings in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015.

In the second quarter of 2016, the Company completed the hotel towers' doors replacement capital project at the Atlantis and as a result, the Company wrote off the remaining net book value of the existing doors, incurring a $0.6 million loss on the disposal.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Six-Month Periods Ended June 30, 2016 and 2015

For the six months ended June 30, 2016, our net income totaled $10.3 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, compared to net income of $9.1 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, for the same period in 2015, reflecting a 12.3% increase in net income and 9.4% increase in diluted earnings per share. Net revenues totaled $104.3 million in the six month period of 2016, reflecting an increase of $7.1 million, or 7.3%, compared to the same period in 2015. Income from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2016 totaled $16.1 million compared to $14.5 million for the same period in 2015, representing an increase of $1.6 million or 10.9%.

Casino revenue increased 7.6% in the first six months of 2016 compared to the first six months of 2015. Casino operating expense as a percentage of casino revenue decreased to 42.5% in the first six months of 2016, compared to 42.9% in the first six months of 2015 due to higher casino revenue.

Food and beverage revenue for the first six months of 2016 increased 7.0% over the first six months of 2015, due to a 4.7% increase in average revenue per cover and 2.2% increase in covers despite Toucan Charlie's Buffet at Atlantis being closed for 70 days during the first quarter of 2016 for a major redesign and upgrade. The average revenue per cover increased primarily as a result of price increases at the Toucan Charlie's Buffet relative to the improved quality and increased menu item offerings. Food and beverage operating expense as a percentage of food and beverage revenue increased in the first six months of 2016 to 42.1% compared to 39.7% for the prior year same period. This increase was primarily the result of the repair and maintenance expenses related to the Atlantis buffet redesign and upgrade and an increase in salaries and wages expense.

Hotel revenue increased 5.4% due to an increase in ADR to $78.58 in the first six months of 2016 from $74.58 in the first six months of 2015, partially offset by slightly lower occupancy of 86.0% during the first six months of 2016 compared to 86.9% during the first six months of 2015. REVPAR was $74.26 and $70.84 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Hotel operating expense as a percentage of hotel revenue increased to 31.2% in the first six months of 2016 as compared to 30.2% for the comparable prior year period due to higher payroll and related expenses.

Other revenue increased 4.4% in the first six months of 2016 compared to the first six months of 2015 driven primarily by increased arcade, spa and retail revenues.

Promotional allowances as a percentage of gross revenues decreased to 18.1% during the first six months of 2016 compared to 18.3% in the comparable 2015 period primarily as a result of the increase in gross revenues.

SG&A expense increased by $1.8 million to $27.7 million in the first six months of 2016 primarily due to: (i) a $1.1 million increase in salaries and wages expense; (ii) a $0.3 million increase in rental expense from the parking lot lease at Atlantis (see Note 5. "Related Party Transactions"); (iii) $0.2 million higher repair and maintenance expense, and (iv) a $0.2 million increase in marketing expense. As a percentage of net revenue, SG&A expense slightly decreased to 26.5% in the first six months of 2016 from 26.6% in the first six months of 2015.

Depreciation and amortization expense decreased to $7.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to $8.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 primarily as a result of a decrease in monthly depreciation expense of the Monarch Casino Black Hawk parking structure following the revision in the expected date of early removal of the parking structure from service in relation to the Monarch Black Hawk expansion project.

Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized decreased to $145 thousand in the first six months of 2016 from $400 thousand in the first six months of 2015 primarily as a result of lower average outstanding borrowings.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

For the six months ended June 30, 2016, net cash provided by operating activities totaled $17.1 million, an increase of $2.2 million or 15.0% compared to the same period in the prior year. This increase was primarily the result of $1.2 million in cash provided by the change in working capital, a $1.1 million increase in net income and $0.6 million loss on disposal of assets, partially offset by a $0.7 million decrease in depreciation expense.

Net cash used in investing activities totaled $14.8 million and $14.7 million in the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Net cash used in investing activities during the first six months of 2016 consisted primarily of cash used for the new garage building at Monarch Casino Black Hawk, the redesign and upgrade of Toucan Charlie's Buffet at the Atlantis, improvements to new additional parking spaces at Atlantis, and for acquisition of gaming and other equipment at both properties. Net cash used in investing activities during the first six months of 2015 consisted primarily of cash used for the ongoing redesign and upgrade work at Monarch Casino Black Hawk, and acquisition of gaming and other equipment at both properties.

Net cash used in financing activities during the first six months of 2016 was $4.2 million and represents $5.9 million payments made on the Credit Facility offset by $1.7 million proceeds from stock options exercises, including excess tax benefit from exercise of stock options. Net cash used in financing activities during the first six months of 2015 was $1.9 million and represented $4.1 million in payments made on the Credit Facility offset by $2.2 million in proceeds from exercise of stock options, including excess tax benefit from options exercised.

Table of Contents

As of June 30, 2016, we had $45.5 million maximum principal available under the Credit Facility, of which $35.0 million was drawn. The proceeds from the Credit Facility were utilized to finance the acquisition of Monarch Casino Black Hawk and the availability under the Credit Facility may also be used for working capital needs, general corporate purposes and for ongoing capital expenditure requirements. We had $10.5 million remaining available credit on the Credit Facility as of June 30, 2016.

The maximum principal available under the Credit Facility is reduced by $1.5 million per quarter beginning June 1, 2013. We may permanently reduce the maximum principal available at any time so long as the amount of such reduction is at least $0.5 million and in multiples of $50,000. During the second quarter of 2015, we permanently reduced the amount available under the Credit Facility by $20 million and by an additional $15 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.

The Credit Facility contains covenants customary for a facility of this nature, including, but not limited to, covenants requiring the preservation and maintenance of the Company's assets and covenants restricting our ability to merge, transfer ownership of Monarch, incur additional indebtedness, encumber assets and make certain investments. Management does not consider the covenants to restrict normal functioning of day-to-day operations. See Part I - Financial Information, Item 1 - Financial Statements, Note 6 "Long-Term Debt".

We may prepay borrowings under the Credit Facility without penalty (subject to certain charges applicable to the prepayment of LIBOR borrowings prior to the end of the applicable interest period). Amounts prepaid may be borrowed so long as the total borrowings outstanding do not exceed the maximum principal available.

On July 20, 2016, we entered into an amended and restated credit facility agreement (the "Amended Credit Facility"), under which our available borrowing capacity was increased to $250 million and the maturity date was extended from November 15, 2016 to July 20, 2021 (See Part I - Financial Information, Item 1 - Financial Statements, Note 1 - "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - Subsequent Event and Note 6 - "Long Term Debt"). Upon execution of the Amended Credit Facility, the entire amount outstanding under the Credit Facility of $35.0 million as of June 30, 2016 has been reclassified as a long-term liability in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

We believe that our existing cash balances, cash flow from operations and borrowings available under the Amended Credit Facility will provide us with sufficient resources to fund our operations, meet our debt obligations, and fulfill our capital expenditure plans over the next twelve months; however, our operations are subject to financial, economic, competitive, regulatory, and other factors, many of which are beyond our control. If we are unable to generate sufficient cash flow or if our cash needs exceed our borrowing capacity under the Amended Credit Facility, we could be required to adopt one or more alternatives, such as reducing, delaying or eliminating planned capital expenditures, selling assets, restructuring debt or obtaining additional equity capital.

OFF BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

A driveway (the "Driveway Project") was completed and opened on September 30, 2004, that is being shared between the Atlantis and a shopping center directly adjacent to the Atlantis (the "Shopping Center"). The Shopping Center is controlled by the Biggest Little Investments, L.P. ("BLI").

John Farahi and Bob Farahi, Co-Chairmen of the Board and executive officers of the Company, and Ben Farahi are the three largest stockholders of Monarch and each also beneficially owns limited partnership interests in BLI. Maxum LLC is the sole general partner of BLI, and Ben Farahi is the sole managing member of Maxum LLC. Neither John Farahi nor Bob Farahi has any management or operational control over BLI or the Shopping Center. Until May 2006, Ben Farahi formerly held positions of Co-Chairman of the Board, Secretary, Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer of the Company.

As part of the Driveway Project, in January 2004, we leased a 37,368 square-foot corner section of the Shopping Center for a minimum lease term of 15 years at an annual rent of $300 thousand, subject to a cost of living increase on each five year anniversary of the driveway lease. As of June 30, 2016, the annual rent is $377 thousand. In August 2015, we exercised our option to extend the lease for three individual five-year terms in addition to the 15 year initial term. At the end of the extension periods, we have the option to purchase the leased section of the Shopping Center at a price to be determined based on an MAI Appraisal. The leased space is being used by us for pedestrian and vehicle access to the Atlantis, and we may use a portion of the parking spaces at the Shopping Center. The total cost of the project was $2.0 million. We were responsible for two thirds of the total cost, or $1.35 million. The cost of the new driveway is being depreciated over the 15-year expected economic useful life of the asset; some components of the new driveway were depreciated over a shorter period of time. We paid approximately $94 thousand and $188 thousand in lease payments for the leased driveway space at the Shopping Center during the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2016, respectively.

In response to customer demand for more convenient surface parking at the Atlantis, and after detailed analysis, on August 28, 2015, the Company, through its subsidiary Golden Road, entered into a 20-year lease (the "Parking Lot Lease") with BLI with respect to a portion of the Shopping Center. This lease gives the Atlantis the right to use a parcel, approximately 4.2 acres, comprised of a commercial building and surrounding land adjacent to the Atlantis. The primary purpose of the Parking Lot Lease is to provide additional, convenient, Atlantis surface parking. We have demolished the commercial building at the Shopping Center and have completed improvements to convert vacant land into approximately 300 additional surface parking spaces for the Atlantis. The minimum annual rent under the Parking Lot Lease is $695 thousand, commencing on November 17, 2015. The minimum annual rent is subject to a cost of living adjustment increase on each five year anniversary. We have an option to renew the Parking Lot Lease for an additional 10-year term. If we elect not to exercise the renewal option, we will be obligated to pay BLI $1.6 million. During the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2016, we paid approximately $174 thousand and $348 thousand in parking lot rent payments, respectively.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

A description of our critical accounting policies and estimates can be found in Item 7 - "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" of our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 ("2015 Form 10-K"). For a more extensive discussion of our accounting policies, see Note 1, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements in our 2015 Form 10-K filed on March 11, 2016.

OTHER FACTORS AFFECTING CURRENT AND FUTURE RESULTS

Negative economic developments in Northern Nevada, the Denver metropolitan area, or in our feeder markets, could adversely impact discretionary incomes of our target customers, which, in turn could adversely impact our business. Our target customers might curtail discretionary spending for leisure activities and businesses may reduce spending for conventions and meetings, both of which would adversely impact our business. Management continues to monitor economic trends and intends, as appropriate, to adopt operating strategies to attempt to mitigate the effects of such adverse conditions. We can make no assurances that such strategies will be effective should negative economic developments in our markets occur.

The expansion of Native American casinos in California has had an impact on casino revenues in Nevada, in general, and many analysts have continued to predict the impact will be more significant on the Reno-Lake Tahoe market. If other Reno-area casinos continue to suffer business losses due to increased pressure from California Native American casinos, such casinos may intensify their marketing efforts to northern Nevada residents as well, greatly increasing competitive activities for our local customers.

Higher fuel costs may deter California, Denver area, and other drive-in customers from coming to the Atlantis or the Monarch Casino Black Hawk.

We also believe that unrestricted land-based casino gaming in or near any major metropolitan area in the Atlantis' key feeder market areas, such as San Francisco or Sacramento, or in other areas near Denver, Colorado, the Black Hawk key feeder markets, could have a material adverse effect on our business.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(1) Because interest payments under our Credit Facility are subject to factors that, in our judgment, fluctuate materially, the amount of future interest payments is not presently determinable. These factors include: (i) future short-term interest rates; (ii) our future leverage ratio which varies with Adjusted EBITDA and our borrowing levels; and (iii) the rate with which we deploy capital and other spending which in turn impacts the level of future borrowings. The interest rate under our Credit Facility is LIBOR, or a base rate (as defined in the Credit Facility), plus an interest rate margin ranging from 1.25% to 2.50% depending on our leverage ratio.

Table of Contents

As described in the "CAPITAL SPENDING AND DEVELOPMENT" section above, we have begun commencement of the Black Hawk Expansion Plan, which started in the fourth quarter of 2013. While we have disclosed the estimated cost of that expansion, we have not entered into contracts for substantial portions of the work. For this reason, we have included in the table above only the amounts for which we have contractual commitments.
