 Station Casinos Announces $45 Million Master Plan
Expansion at Sunset Station
LAS VEGAS, April 1, 1998 - Officials of Station Casinos, Inc. (NYSE: STN) today announced the Company has begun a $45 million master plan expansion at Sunset Station Hotel Casino located in the Henderson/Green Valley section of the Las Vegas valley.

The next phase of the master plan is designed to enhance Sunset Station's reputation for quality entertainment and will include the following elements:

The 11 additional movie screens will complement the existing 13-screen multiplex movie theaters operated by ACT III. The resulting 24 screens will create the largest movie theater complex in Las Vegas. The additional screens will allow Station Casinos to continue to attract the best movie line-ups in Las Vegas. The new screens will feature THX sound in every auditorium and "stadium-style" seating for a state-of-the-art audiovisual experience.

In addition, Sunset Station will build a convenient 2,000-space covered parking garage adjacent to a new,
separate theater entrance, a new steakhouse restaurant, and over 20,000 square feet of additional casino space, which will include 400 more slot and video poker machines. This portion of the master plan is expected to take nine months to complete.

The Wayne Gretzky Roller Hockey Center and Ice Skating Arena will be a state-of-the-art complex that will feature in-line roller hockey and ice skating surfaces for a wide range of league activities, public skating, clinics, instruction and other events designed for all ages.

Construction of the skating complex will begin immediately upon completion of the parking garage and will be open to the public approximately six months thereafter.

 "We are very pleased with the customer acceptance and response to Sunset Station. The addition of these new amenities will enhance our Company's reputation as the premier developer of entertainment destinations for Las Vegas residents. We also look forward to adding the roller hockey and ice skating rinks early next year, which along with the other amenities, will enhance Sunset Station's reputation as a regional entertainment mall," said Glenn C. Christenson, executive vice president/chief financial officer.
