Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.


(a) On September 4, 2013, Century Casinos, Inc. (the “Registrant”) dismissed its principal independent registered public accounting firm, Grant Thornton LLP (the “Former Auditor”).


During the Registrant’s two most recent fiscal years and subsequent interim periods preceding dismissal, the Registrant had no disagreements with the Former Auditor on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements if not resolved would have caused the Former Auditor to report the disagreement.


There has been no adverse opinion, disclaimer of opinion, or qualified opinion in the Former Auditor’s report for any of the preceding two years.


For the preceding two years and through September 4, 2013, there was one “reportable event” as that term is described in Item 304(a)(1)(v)(A) of Regulation S-K. In connection with its 2011 Form 10-K, the Registrant reported a material weakness regarding the Registrant’s internal control over financial reporting relating to accounting for income taxes.  Because of this material weakness, the Registrant concluded that internal controls over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 31, 2011. The Registrant has since taken actions to remediate the material weakness and to enhance its internal controls over financial reporting. No further “reportable events” as that term is described in Item 304 (a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K were identified.


The Registrant has requested that the Former Auditor furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the above statements. A copy of the Former Auditor’s letter dated September 6, 2013 is attached as Exhibit 16.1.


(b) On September 6, 2013, the Registrant engaged Deloitte & Touche LLP as its independent registered public accounting firm. During the two most recent fiscal years and the interim periods preceding the engagement, the Registrant has not consulted Deloitte & Touche LLP with respect to the accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Registrant’s consolidated financial statements, or any other matters set forth in Item 304 (a)(2)(i) or (ii) of Regulation S-K.


The decision to change accountants was approved by the Registrant’s Audit Committee and Board of Directors.



Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
