The resort which will include 1,350 slot machines and 40 casino tables is scheduled to open in 2015.

The resort is expected to include 1,350 slot machines, 40 casino tables, 250-seat buffet, 75-seat gourmet restaurant, 140-seat coffee shop, a miniature golf course, an event centre, 2,200 square feet of retail space and 15,000 square feet of outdoor space complete with a pool.

The chairman of the Gaming Commission, John Hairston, said that the amenities and the fact the project already has financial backing helped secure the Commission’s approval.

Hairston said, “We expected a significant enough project to move the needle.

The commission has concluded we already have plenty of slot machines so you need more visitors. That’s beneficial to everybody, both the new venture and everybody else. And that’s why we pushed so hard for the amenities.”
