Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 17, 2017, Century Casinos, Inc. (the "Company") entered into an underwriting agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated and Roth Capital Partners, LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named in the Underwriting Agreement (the "Underwriters"), with respect to the underwritten public offering (the "Offering") of 4,250,000 shares of common stock of the Company (the "Common Stock"), at a public offering price of $7.50 per share. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company also granted the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to 637,500 additional shares of Common Stock, which the Underwriters exercised in full on November 21, 2017. The Company consummated the Offering, and the Underwriters delivered the 4,887,500 shares of Common Stock to purchasers, on November 21, 2017.

The net proceeds of the Offering to the Company are estimated to be approximately $34.4 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and before estimated expenses of the Offering, including proceeds from the exercise of the Underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares of Common Stock in full.  The Company intends to use up to $25 million of the net proceeds received from the sale of the Common Stock to fund construction costs for the Century Mile project. The Company intends to use the remaining net proceeds for investments in additional gaming projects and for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including, without limitation, expanding existing businesses, acquiring businesses, investing in other business opportunities and repayment or refinancing of debt. Pending such use, the Company may temporarily invest the net proceeds in short-term investments.

The Underwriting Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants by the Company. It also provides for customary indemnification by each of the Company and the Underwriters against certain liabilities and customary contribution provisions in respect of those liabilities.

The Offering was conducted pursuant to the Company's effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on Form S-3 (File No. 333-218282).  A prospectus supplement and prospectus relating to the Offering have been filed with the SEC.

The foregoing summary is qualified by reference to the Underwriting Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein.
