The casino will hold a soft opening, where invited guests will gamble with their own money, on October 3rd. About 13,000 guests will be invited and the event will give casino officials a better idea of any last minute fixes of adjustments that need to be made before the grand opening. Any money made by the casino during the soft opening will be donated to charity.
When open, the 475,000-square-foot Ohio casino will feature over 3,000 slots, 78 table games, a poker room and four restaurants. Table games will include blackjack, craps, roulette, Crazy 4 Poker, Fortune Pai Gow Poker, Big 6 Wheel, Mississippi Stud, Ultimate Texas Hold ’Em, Let It Ride, Three-Card Poker Progressive, Mini Baccarat and Four-Card Poker.
“We’re excited. Our staff is super-energized, enthusiastic and charged up, particularly with the countdown” to the opening, said Hollywood’s general manager Ameet Patel.
