Sean Hammond has resigned from his post as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Aquarius Casino Resort and Edgewater Casino Resort after over 16 years of service.

He grew up in sunny California but finished high school in Bullhead City, Arizona in 1985. He started working at the casinos in Laughlin at age 21 and worked his way up the ladder being promoted to GM of the Aquarius in January of 2011. He has been the recipient of many awards, including the Citizen of the Year and Tourism of the Year from the Community Achievement Awards committee, as well as the Elks Citizen of the Year.  His program “Feed A Family” he has organized through the years has fed 1000’s of families each year around the holidays. The meals are provided to many local organizations such as:Kingman Food Bank in Kingman, AZ; Cornerstone Mission Project in Kingman, AZ; Golden Valley Food Bank in Golden Valley, AZ; Food for Families in Bullhead City, AZ; Colorado River Food Bank in Laughlin, NV; The Women’s Club in Needles, CA; Interagency Council Community Food Bank in Lake Havasu City, AZ; United Methodist Church in Fort Mohave, AZ; and Caring Hearts in Bullhead City, AZ.

In 2006, American Casino Entertainment properties purchased the Flamingo Laughlin from Caesar’s Entertainment, and Hammond came on board as vice president of marketing and player development. The name was changed to the Aquarius Casino Resort that November. In 2017 Golden Entertainment purchased the Aquarius Casino Resort. Then again in 2019 The Aquarius, Colorado Belle and Edgewater officially joined  with Golden Entertainment whom finalized the purchase of the latter two properties from Marnell Gaming. The Laughlin Event Center was part of the purchase, which consisted of $155 million in cash and 911,000 shares of Golden Entertainment common stock.

We want to thank Mr. Hammond for all of his great accomplishments and contributions to our community and wish him much success in his next chapter.
