“We wanted it to be a thoughtful first step,” said casino spokesman Scott Smith. “We’re very confident. We’re ready, but it’s not unusual to have a soft opening.”
The newest Maine casino currently offers 500 slot machines, a restaurant and lounge as well as a dozen table games which include blackjack, poker, craps and roulette. Officials plan to expand the gaming floor in the near future.
The only other casino in Maine is the Hollywood Casino Bangor.
