Lawsuit filed over planned sale of Klondike Sunset Casino

A dispute over the planned sale of a Henderson locals casino has resulted in a lawsuit.

A company called Its Gotta Go LLC filed suit Thursday in Clark County District Court claiming the owners of the Klondike Sunset Casino have breached a May 12 agreement to sell the property.

The suit says Its Gotta Go agreed to pay $3.56 million for the property at 444 W. Sunset Road, near Boulder Highway.

The suit claims the buyer put $100,000 into escrow, but complications arose because Its Gotta Go is not yet licensed as a casino operator.

The suit says Klondike Sunset LLC, the current owner, has refused to agree to a lease arrangement in which it would continue to run the casino with its nonrestricted gaming license — or to extend the time for Its Gotta Go to obtain a gaming license.

Klondike Sunset principal John Woodrum couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

An attorney representing Its Gotta Go declined comment on who the principals of that company are.
