The all-cash deal was announced Tuesday by Z Capital Partners LLC, the private equity arm of Z Capital Group LLC.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Z Capital and affiliates that already own about 41 percent of Affinity stock plan to buy remaining shares for $17.35 each.

It also owns the Mardi Gras, Golden Gates and Golden Gulch properties in Blackhawk, Colorado; the St. Jo Frontier and Mark Twain casinos in Missouri; and the Lakeside Hotel Casino in Osceola, Iowa.
