Burnside Game Place, which includes bingo and a full-service casino, is for sale.
The building at 1605 W. Burnside St. is owned by the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire.
“For the time it takes to manage the facility, they could use it better, and they’re getting back to their core competencies as a nonprofit and really want to spin this off,” said Craig Hagen of NAI Sioux Falls, who has it listed.
“It’s very unique in that it not only has the bingo but also a casino as well.”
A bingo operator must have a nonprofit status, he said.
“I think a nonprofit could come in, buy the property, run the bingo and really make a go of it,” Hagen said. “It’s a great building. It shows well. It’s got great parking and excess land that would be developed out on Western Avenue.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs plans to continue operating it until a buyer is found.
The building is listed at $1.45 million, which includes an additional 1.4 acres that would be developed. There is an option to offer facility rental, and it also includes food-service capability.
