(c) In addition, in any Advance Construction Disbursement Request, the Issuer may request a disbursement to the PFC Payment Account to enable PFC to purchase Bonds the proceeds from which will not be immediately disbursed by the Bond Trustee to pay Permitted Land-Based Project Costs.

On each such Interest Payment Date, Disbursement Agent shall liquidate securities held in the Interest Reserve Account (to the extent required) and pay over to the Trustee the amounts due with respect to the First Mortgage Notes, as specified in such certificate, from the Interest Reserve Account. In the event that the Issuer fails to deliver the certificate required by the first sentence of this paragraph (or sets forth in such certificate an incorrect calculation of the amount required to be paid with respect to the First Mortgage Notes under the Indenture on such Interest Payment Date), the Trustee may direct the Disbursement Agent to liquidate such securities (to the extent required), and disburse to the Trustee the amounts necessary to pay the amounts due with respect to the First Mortgage Notes. In the event there are insufficient funds in the Interest Reserve Account to pay any amount due pursuant to such certificate or direction so given by the Trustee, the Issuer shall, prior to the applicable Interest Payment Date, deposit in cash into the Interest Reserve Account an amount equal to such deficiency; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the Trustee shall direct the Disbursement Agent to disburse an amount equal to such deficiency from the Construction Disbursement Account to the Interest Reserve Account in the event such amounts are not received from the Issuer on a timely basis. The Issuer acknowledges that any failure by the Issuer to provide notice or deposit funds referenced in this SECTION 4.4(a) shall not in any way exonerate or diminish its obligation to make all payments under the Indenture as and when due.

The portion of the Proceeds that will be deposited into the Interest Reserve Account contemporaneously with the execution of this Agreement may exceed the Initial Interest Reserve Account Target since the Expected Interest Reserve Income Amount will be established with greater clarity after the Issuer directs the Disbursement Agent in writing to invest such Proceeds. As such, within five (5) Business Days after the date hereof, the Issuer shall deliver to the Disbursement Agent a request for the disbursement of such excess funds from the Interest Reserve Account to the Construction Disbursement Account in the form of EXHIBIT C-5 hereto.

CERTAIN CONSTRUCTION PERIOD COVENANTS. The following covenants apply only during the Construction Period: 5.1 AMENDMENTS TO PROJECT BUDGET. The Project Budget for the Facility may be amended from time to time in the manner set forth herein. The Issuer shall have the right from time to time to amend the Project Budget without consent of the Trustee, Independent Construction Consultant or any other party to this Agreement to change the amounts allocated for specific line item components of the Facility; PROVIDED that, in any such amendment, the Issuer may neither modify the description of any line item nor modify the Pre-Issuance Expense amount set forth for any such line item and, for each line item, the Remaining Budgeted Amount must equal the difference of the Total Budgeted Amount for such line item less the amount of Pre-Issuance Expenses for such line item. 5.1.1 SOURCES OF FUNDS FOR LINE-ITEM INCREASES. A line item in the Project Budget may be increased only if the funds for such increase are made available in the Project Budget from: (a) an increase in Additional Pre-Operating Revenue to the extent not previously expended or dedicated to the payment of items contained in the Project Budget; (b) an increase in Realized Savings from another line item and a corresponding reduction in the construction line items related to such Realized Savings; or 36 (c) the reduction of the "contingency" line item in the Project Budget, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the "contingency" line item may not be reduced below Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) until the date that is forty-five (45) days after the date the Final Plans have been completed and such reserved amount shall not be available for application to any other line item in the Project Budget unless and until the Final Plans have been completed. 5.1.2 PROJECT BUDGET AMENDMENT PROCESS. Any amendment to the Project Budget shall be in writing. Any such amendment shall identify with particularity the line item to be increased or decreased, if any, the amount of the increase or decrease (if any), and in the event of an increase in a construction line item, the Realized Savings, Additional Pre-Operating Revenue, and/or line item for "contingency" in the Project Budget permitted to be reduced pursuant to SECTION 5.1.1 (but not any Retainage Amounts), which are proposed to be utilized to pay for the increase; and (y) in the case of a decrease in a construction line item, the Realized Savings in the amount of such decrease. The parties acknowledge that a portion of any cost reduction achieved with respect to the work performed under a Construction Contract may be payable to the General Contractor or another Contractor under such Construction Contract (subject to the conditions contained in the GMP Contract or such other Construction Contract with respect to application of savings) and that in such case the entire reduction may not become Realized Savings. Construction line items may be reduced only upon obtaining, and in the amount of, Realized Savings. The total amount allocated in the Project Budget for the line items for Finishes, as such line items are set forth on EXHIBIT D-3 hereto, may not be reduced by more than fifteen percent (15%) of the sum of the amounts allocated to such line items on EXHIBIT D-3 hereto. The "pre-opening expenses" line item on the Project Budget may not be reduced by more than fifteen percent (15%).

The "working capital and machine loads" line item, the "excess liquidity" line item, the "owner supplied FF&E" line item, and the "FF&E" line item on the Project Budget may not be reduced. Any amounts of Realized Savings, Additional Pre-Operating Revenue, contingency amounts or previously allocated reserves so identified for use in connection with a particular line item thenceforth shall be deemed dedicated to the particular line item, unless and until the Project Budget is amended to reduce the amounts budgeted for the line item of the Project Budget. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time Soft Costs may be applied against the "excess liquidity" line item of the Project Budget; PROVIDED, HOWEVER that (x) $ 3,000,000.00 constitutes a reserve against which no Project Costs may be applied and represents amounts that can only be disbursed to the Issuer upon satisfaction of the conditions precedent in Section 4.6, and (y) $1,031,900.00 shall be deposited concurrently with the execution of this Agreement into the Tidelands Lease Reserve Account and constitutes a reserve that can only be disbursed upon satisfaction of the conditions precedent in Section 4.8. 5.1.3 PROJECT BUDGET AMENDMENT CERTIFICATE.

Upon submission of such Project Budget Amendment Certificate, together with the 37 Exhibits thereto, such amendment shall become effective hereunder, and the Project Budget for the Facility shall thereafter be as so amended. 5.2 CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT AMENDMENT PROCESS. The Issuer shall not enter into or approve any Construction Contract Amendment except as set forth in this SECTION 5.2. The Issuer shall have the right from time to time to amend any Construction Contract to change the scope of work for any portion of the Facility and/or the Issuer's payment obligations in connection therewith. Any Construction Contract Amendment that (i) results in a cost increase in a Material Construction Contract in excess of $250,000, individually (or, with respect to the GMP Contract only, in excess of $500,000, individually) or when taken together with all other Construction Contract Amendments, results in a cost increase of $2,000,000 in the aggregate (or, with respect to the GMP Contract only, in excess of $5,000,000 in the aggregate), (ii) when taken together with all related Construction Contract Amendments and after giving effect to any new, related Construction Contracts, results in a material lessening of the scope or quality of the work constituting the design or construction of the Facility or (iii) results in the likely addition of no less than two weeks of construction (or such amendments, in the aggregate, result in the likely addition of no less than eight weeks of construction) (a "MATERIAL CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT AMENDMENT") shall be in writing and shall identify with particularity all changes being made. Each Material Construction Contract Amendment shall be effective when and only when: (a) the Issuer has, or the Issuer and the Contractor have, executed and delivered the Material Construction Contract Amendment (with the effectiveness thereof subject only to satisfaction of the applicable conditions in clauses (b) and (c) below); (b) the Issuer has submitted the Material Construction Contract Amendment to the Disbursement Agent and the Trustee together with an Officer's Certificate in the form attached hereto as EXHIBIT F (a "CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT AMENDMENT CERTIFICATE"), together with the certificates of the Independent Construction Consultant, the General Contractor (only for Hard Costs under the GMP Contract (including "Direct Purchase Items" as defined in the GMP Contract), unless such Hard Costs relate to an owner change directive issued by Premier under the GMP Contract) and Architect (for Hard Costs with respect only to Plans prepared by it) as provided in the form of EXHIBITS 1 through 3 to such Construction Contract Amendment Certificate. Construction Contract Amendments which are not Material Construction Contract Amendments shall not require compliance with the requirements set forth in this SECTION 5.2 or the approval of the Trustee or any other Person to be effective. 5.3 CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS ENTERED INTO AFTER THE ISSUANCE DATE. The Issuer may from time to time enter into Construction Contracts consistent with the Final Plans and the Project Budget, as each is in effect from time to time.

The Undersigned and Premier have entered into that certain [Agreement Between Owner and Contractor] dated as of [_____________], 20____, pursuant to which the Undersigned has agreed to [___________________________] in connection with the Facility (as amended and supplemented or modified from time to time in accordance with its terms and the terms hereof, the "CONTRACT"). D. SECURITY AGREEMENT. Pursuant to that certain Pledge and Security Agreement dated as of January 23, 2004 (the "SECURITY AGREEMENT"), by and between Premier, PFC, the Trustee and the other parties named therein, Premier has collaterally assigned its interest under the contracts between Premier and any person pertaining to the construction of the Facility, including the GMP Contract (the "CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS") to the Trustee on behalf of the Secured Parties. AGREEMENT NOW THEREFORE, the Parties hereby agree as follows: 1. The Undersigned consents to Premier's transfer, assignment, and grant of a security interest in and to the Contract, as provided for in the Security Agreement. Page 1 of 8 EXHIBIT H-1 2. The Trustee shall be entitled (but not obligated) to cure any defaults of Premier under the Contract. Upon receipt of notice from the Trustee, the Undersigned agrees to accept such cure by the Trustee. 3. The Undersigned will not, without the prior written consent of the Trustee, (i) cancel or terminate the Contract except as provided in the Contract and in accordance with SECTION 4 hereof, or consent to or accept any cancellation, termination or suspension thereof by Premier, (ii) sell or assign any part of its interest in the Contract; or (iii) amend or modify the Contract in any material respect unless a Construction Contract Amendment Certificate has been delivered by Premier pursuant to SECTION 5.2 of the Cash Collateral and Disbursement Agreement entered into among the Issuer, the Trustee, such construction consultant and a disbursement agent thereunder (the "DISBURSEMENT AGREEMENT"). 4. The Undersigned will not terminate the Contract on account of any default or breach of Premier thereunder without written notice to the Trustee and first providing to the Trustee (i) ninety (90) days from the date notice of default or breach is delivered to the Trustee to cure such default if such default is the failure to pay amounts to the Undersigned which are due and payable under the Contract or (ii) a reasonable opportunity, but not fewer than one hundred twenty (120) days, to cure such breach or default if the breach or default cannot be cured by the payment of money to the Undersigned. If possession of the Facility is necessary to cure such breach or default and the Trustee or its designee(s) or assignee(s) declare Premier in default and commence foreclosure proceedings, the Trustee or its designee(s) or assignee(s), will be allowed a reasonable period to complete such proceedings. If the Trustee or its designee(s) or assignee(s) are prohibited by any court order or bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings from curing the default or from commencing or prosecuting foreclosure proceedings, the foregoing time periods shall be extended by the period of such prohibition, but such extension shall not exceed one hundred and fifty (150) days beyond the time frames set out in clause (ii) of the first sentence of this SECTION 4. 5. The Undersigned consents to the transfer of Premier's interest under the Contract to (i) the Secured Parties or any of them or (ii) a purchaser or grantee at a foreclosure sale by judicial or nonjudicial foreclosure and sale or by a conveyance by Premier in lieu of foreclosure (any such purchaser or grantee, other than the Secured Parties, shall be referred to herein as a "THIRD PARTY TRANSFEREE"). The Undersigned agrees that upon such foreclosure, sale or conveyance, the Undersigned shall recognize such Secured Party or Third Party Transferee as the applicable party under the Contract (provided that such Secured Party or Third Party Transferee assumes the obligations of Premier under the Contract and provided further that such Secured Party or Third Party Transferee is creditworthy). "Assume the obligations of Premier under the Contract" shall mean the assumption by such Secured Party or Third Party Transferee of all obligations of Premier under the Contract, regardless of whether for past or future matters, and specifically, but not by way of limitation, shall require simultaneous payment of all amounts owed and acknowledgement of liability for all amounts becoming owed, all as a condition of the Undersigned's obligation to accept such assumption and to accept instructions from such Secured Party or Third Party Transferee. A Third Party Transferee or Secured Party shall be deemed creditworthy if either (a) it has a net worth of at least $20 million dollars (calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principals in effect from time to time in the United States); or (b) it has been approved as creditworthy by Undersigned, it being understood that the Undersigned shall not unreasonably withhold, delay or condition its approval and shall take into account the net worth of such Secured Party or Third Party Transferee and any letter of credit or other credit instrument proposed to be made available as security for the performance of such Third Party Transferee. 6. If the Trustee gives written notice to the Undersigned that an event of default has occurred under any of the agreements with the Secured Parties (the "TRANSACTION DOCUMENTS") and requests that the Undersigned continue its performance under the Contract, then the Undersigned shall Page 2 of 8 EXHIBIT H-1 thereafter perform for the Secured Parties under the Contract in accordance with its terms so long as the Undersigned shall be paid all amounts as and when required under the Contract, including payment of any sums due to the Undersigned for work performed up to and including the date of Premier's default and thereafter, with said request constituting such an agreement by the Trustee on behalf of one or more of the Secured Parties to so pay the Undersigned in accordance with the Contract. The Undersigned shall have the right to refuse to continue performance of the Contract unless and until the Undersigned has been paid in full for all amounts then due under the Contract. The Undersigned shall render such performance to the Secured Parties notwithstanding any contrary directions, instructions or assertions from Premier. Premier hereby authorizes and directs the Undersigned to render such performance to the Secured Parties as contemplated herein. 7. In the event that the Contract is rejected by a trustee or debtor-in possession in any bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding, and if, within sixty (60) days after such rejection, the Secured Parties or their successors or assigns shall so request, the Undersigned will execute and deliver to the Secured Parties or their designee or assignee (if creditworthy as defined herein) a new Construction Contract, which Construction Contract shall be on the same terms and conditions as the original Contract, subject to such extensions of time and additional compensation as may be appropriate under the circumstances. However, as a condition precedent to the Undersigned's obligations to execute and deliver any such new Construction Contract, Secured Parties shall pay all previously unpaid sums owed to the Undersigned under the original Contract. 8. The parties recognize and agree that the events contemplated in SECTIONS 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 may lead to or involve time delays and increased costs as to the Undersigned's performance under the Contract, and, therefore, the Undersigned must be granted such extensions of time and additional compensation as may be appropriate due to actual impacts of the circumstances contemplated herein. 9. In the event the Secured Parties or their designee(s) or assignee(s) elect to perform Premier's obligations under the Contract and cure any default by Premier under the Contract as provided in SECTIONS 2 and 4 above (and not under SECTIONS 5, 6, 7, or 10 herein), the Secured Parties, their designee(s) and assignee(s), shall have no personal liability to the Undersigned for the performance of such obligations, and the sole recourse of the Undersigned in seeking the enforcement of such obligations shall be to such parties' interest in the Facility; however, this limitation on personal liability shall not apply as to actions by the Secured Parties or their designee(s) or assignee(s) under SECTIONS 5, 6, 7, or 10 herein. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any foreclosure of the Facility by the Secured Parties, the Undersigned shall retain any and all of its rights and claims against Premier. 10. In the event the Secured Parties or their designee(s) or assignee(s) succeed to Premier's interest under the Contract, the Secured Parties shall have the right to assign all or a pro rata interest in the Contract or a new Construction Contract entered into pursuant to SECTION 7 to a person or entity to whom the Facility is transferred, provided such transferee assumes the obligations of Premier (or the Secured Parties) under the Contract. Upon such assignment, the Trustee and, if applicable, the Secured Parties (including their agents and employees) shall be released from any further liability thereunder to the extent of the interest assigned, upon the following conditions: (i) the assignee must be a party as to whom the Undersigned does not have a reasonable objection, including, but not limited to, as to the creditworthiness (as defined in SECTION 5 above) of the assignee; (ii) all sums due to the Undersigned as of the time it received notice of that assignment or as of the time such assignment takes place (whichever is later) are paid in full; and (iii) the assignee must acknowledge, upon terms and conditions acceptable to Undersigned, liability for all sums due and owing and becoming due and owing thereafter and for all other obligations under the Contract, including, but not limited to obligations as to the issues addressed by SECTION 8. Page 3 of 8 EXHIBIT H-1 11. The warranties provided by the Undersigned under the Contract shall continue in full force and effect (until the expiration of the warranty periods set forth in the Contract) in the event that the Secured Parties or their designee(s) or assignee(s) succeed to Premier's interest in the Contract (whether by foreclosure, sale or other assignment) and upon the further assignment or sale of the Contract by the Secured Parties or their designee(s) or assignee(s). 12. The Undersigned hereby assigns to Premier (and Premier's assigns) all its interest in any subcontracts and purchase orders now existing or hereinafter entered into by the Undersigned for performance of any part of the Undersigned's obligations under the Contract (the "SUBCONTRACTS"). Such assignment shall be effective only upon the termination of the Contract for the default of the Undersigned, and then only as to those Subcontracts which Premier (or its assigns) at such time accepts in writing. The Undersigned also grants a security interest to Premier (and Premier's assigns) in all of its interest in such Subcontracts as security for the performance of the Undersigned's obligations under the Contract. The Undersigned further assigns to Premier (and Premier's assigns) all of its rights with respect to any warranties under the Subcontracts, such assignment shall be effective upon the termination of the Contract for the default of the Undersigned. 13. The Undersigned hereby agrees (i) to cooperate with Professional Associates Construction Services, Inc. or any other person designated from time to time by the Trustee to serve as construction consultant under the Disbursement Agreement (the "INDEPENDENT CONSTRUCTION CONSULTANT") to facilitate performance of its duties to monitor the progress of the construction of the Facility, (ii) to, upon request, deliver to the Independent Construction Consultant copies of any notices and progress reports delivered to Premier pursuant to the Contract, (iii) to meet with the Independent Construction Consultant to discuss the status and progress of construction of the Facility whenever reasonably requested by the Independent Construction Consultant and (iv) to allow the Independent Construction Consultant the opportunity to be included in all material meetings between the Undersigned and Premier related to the construction of the Facility. However, this shall not prohibit the Undersigned from moving forward with any meeting when the circumstances surrounding such meeting make it unreasonable to await involvement by the Independent Construction Consultant. 14. The Undersigned hereby represents, warrants and certifies that: (a) The execution, delivery and performance by the Undersigned of the Contract and this Consent has been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action, and does not and will not require any further consents or approvals which have not been obtained, or violate any provision of any law, regulation, order, judgment, injunction or similar matters or breach any agreement presently in effect with respect to or binding on the Undersigned (except as to assignments of Subcontracts set forth in SECTION 12).
