Item 4.01:  Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.

     On January 27, 2005 the  Registrant  appointed  Grant  Thornton  LLP as the
principal  independent  accountant  for its  subsidiary  Century  Casinos Africa
(Proprietary) Limited ("Century Africa"), replacing  PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc.
(the "Former Auditor"), which was the previous auditor for Century Africa. Grant
Thornton LLP, which continues to be the principal independent accountant for the
Registrant,  relied  in past  years on the  Former  Auditors  reports  regarding
Century Africa, a significant  subsidiary of the Registrant.  The Former Auditor
was  dismissed  on January 27,  2005.  The  decision to change  accountants  was
approved by the Audit  Committee of the  Registrant's  Board of Directors and by
the Board of Directors.

     The Former  Auditor's  reports on the financial  statements for each of the
fiscal years ended  December 31, 2002 and December 31, 2003 contained no adverse
opinion or  disclaimer  of opinion,  nor were they  qualified  or modified as to
uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

     During the  Registrant's  fiscal years ended December 31, 2002 and December
31, 2003, and through  January 27, 2005,  there were no  disagreements  with the
Former  Auditor on any matter of accounting  principles or practices,  financial
statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreement(s),  if
not resolved to the satisfaction of the Former Auditor,  would have caused it to
make reference to the subject matter of the  disagreement(s)  in connection with
its reports on the financial statements for such years.

     In a letter to the  directors of Century  Africa dated October 28, 2004, in
the 2004 Q3 Century Casino,  Inc. Audit Committee meeting,  and by letter to the
Registrant's  Chief  Accounting  Officer  dated  December 15,  2004,  the Former
Auditor  reported the urgent  necessity  to fill the vacant  position of Century
Africa's  financial  controller  who  departed on July 18, 2004 and of the chief
accountant  who departed on October 22, 2004,  in order to alleviate a potential
breakdown in internal controls and a deterioration in financial reporting.

     As of December 15,  2004,  the date of the more recent  letter,  the Former
auditor was  unaware of  staffing  changes  that had been  completed  by Century
Africa.  On  December 1, 2004 the  Registrant  hired a staff  accountant  and on
December 8, 2004 it hired an internal auditor. In addition, on December 1, 2004,
the Registrant hired a financial  director who will begin employment on March 1,
2005.  The  financial  director will be based out of the  Registrant's  regional
headquarters in Mauritius,  but will have financial responsibility for all South
African  operations.  In the view of the Registrant,  the oversight  provided by
local management,  the review completed by the Registrant's corporate accounting
personnel in the United States,  and the  replacement  of accounting  personnel,
alleviated   the  potential   for  a  breakdown  in  internal   controls  and  a
deterioration of the financial reporting for the South African segment.

     The Registrant  requested that the Former Auditor  furnish it with a letter
addressed to the SEC stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements.
A copy of such letter,  dated February 2, 2005, is filed as Exhibit 16.4 to this
Form 8-K.

Pursuant  to the  requirements  of the  Securities  Exchange  Act of  1934,  the
Registrant  has duly  caused  this  report  to be  signed  on its  behalf by the
undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
