Historical Note:

Colorado Belle Hotel & Casino-Owned and operated by Mandalay Resort Group. Advanced Patent Technology, a slot machine maker and slot route operator, announced plans in 1979 for a hotel and casino, with Ramada Inns to manage the hotel. Construction began in October 1979, as a joint venture with John Fulton, a Southern California restauranteur, and the casino opened on November 10, 1980.

In 1983, a preliminary agreement was reached to sell the casino to a group including attorney William Morris and Circus Circus Enterprises executives William Bennett and William Pennington for $1.6 million, but Morris quit the deal a month later. The next year, Circus Circus bought the casino for $4 million, and made plans to move it to make room for an expansion of its neighboring Edgewater Hotel and Casino.

Plans for a new Colorado Belle hotel and casino were unveiled in 1985, and it opened on July 1, 1987, at a cost of $80 million.

Circus Circus later became Mandalay Resort Group, and was bought by MGM Mirage in 2004.

On October 16, 2006, MGM Mirage announced that it planned to sell the Colorado Belle and the Edgewater to a partnership of M Resort owner Anthony Marnell III and Sher Gaming for $200 million. The Nevada Gaming Commission approved the sale on May 17, 2007, and the completion of the transaction was announced on June 1, 2007
