Jacobs Reports Third Quarter

PRNewswire BLACK HAWK, Colo. Nov. 7 :

Jacobs Entertainment, Inc. (JEI), an owner and operator of multiple gaming
properties, today announced unaudited financial results for its third
quarter and nine-month period ended September 30, 2003.

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2003 was $44.2 million approximately
equal to the third quarter in the previous year. Net income for the third
quarter of 2003 was $770,000 compared to net income of $1.8 million in the
same quarter in the previous year.

Net revenue for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2003 was $129.2
million compared to $112.9 million for the nine-month period ended
September 30, 2002. Net income for the nine-month period ended September
30, 2003 was $3.2 million compared to $2.9 million for the same period in
the previous year.

Due to the significance of the acquisitions occurring on February 22,
2002, whereby JEI became a geographically diversified gaming and
pari-mutuel wagering company with properties in several states, the
overall composition of our financial position and the results of our
operations have significantly changed for the nine month period ended
September 30, 2003 as compared to the nine month period ended September
30, 2002. As a result of the combination of the different entities and
periods covered by the various transactions, a comparison between these
two periods on a historical basis is not meaningful. Additional pro forma
information is available in JEI`s Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on November 7, 2003.
