Item 1. Security and Issuer

Recreational Enterprises, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“REI”), Donald L. Carano Family Trust (the “Trust” and, together with REI, the “Reporting Persons”) and Donald L. Carano initially filed this Schedule 13D on September 19, 2014, as amended by Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D filed on September 22, 2016, Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D filed on October 13, 2017, Amendment No. 3 to Schedule 13D filed on November 20, 2017, Amendment No. 4 to Schedule 13D filed on June 24, 2019 and Amendment No. 5 to Schedule 13D filed on March 17, 2020 (collectively, the “Schedule 13D”). The purpose of this Amendment No. 6 is to amend and supplement the Schedule 13D with respect to shares of common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Eldorado Resorts, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“ERI” or the “Issuer”). Other information regarding the Reporting Persons and their purchases of the Issuer’s common stock remain true and correct and can be found in the Schedule 13D incorporated herein by this reference.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended by adding to the end of Item 4 the following:

As previously disclosed, on March 17, 2020, 2,354,000 of REI’s pledged shares of Common Stock under a margin loan agreement with a third party commercial bank were sold for an average price of $11.674 per share to satisfy, in part, a margin call under the margin loan.

On March 18, 2020, 171,542 pledged shares of Common Stock were sold for an average price of $6.9674 per share on the open market by the third party commercial bank to satisfy the remaining margin call under the margin loan. These sales satisfied REI’s obligations under the margin loan in full. As a result, no shares of Common Stock owned by the Reporting Persons are pledged as collateral.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

Item 5 of the Schedule 13D is amended to read as follows:

(a) and (b) As of the date hereof, REI owns beneficially 8,604,325 shares of Common Stock, representing approximately 11.06% of the outstanding Common Stock of the Issuer (based on a total of 77,796,891 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of February 24, 2020, according to information filed by ERI on February 28, 2020).

As of the date hereof, the Trust, which holds a direct ownership interest in REI, had shared voting and dispositive power with respect to all 8,604,325 shares of Common Stock owned beneficially by REI, representing approximately 11.06% of the outstanding Common Stock of the Issuer.

(c) Except as described in Item 4 above, no Reporting Person has effected any transaction in the Common Stock during the past 60 days.

(d) To the extent that REI determines to make a dividend, including from the proceeds of the sale of shares of Common Stock owned directly by REI, the Trust and the other shareholders of REI have the right to receive a portion of such dividends based on their percentage ownership of REI.

(e) Not applicable.

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

Item 6 of the Schedule 13D is amended to add the following supplemental information:

REI has satisfied its obligations in full under the margin loan agreement with a third party commercial bank, as described more fully in Item 4. As a result, no shares of Common Stock owned by the Reporting Persons are pledged as collateral.
