The state's newest casino is set to open their doors tomorrow.
This will be the second casino opening for the state. Perryville's Hollywood Casino opened last September. Originally, Ocean Downs was to be the first casino in the state. However due to issues with construction, the original opening date had to be postponed nearly 6 months.
Ocean Downs is a 34,000 square foot gaming facility that cost $45 million to build. The casino will operate 750 slot machines. These games will range from penny machines to $5 games. 200 new jobs have been created.
Last week the casino had a trial run. All proceeds made that day were donated to the county's American Legion Posts. The gaming alone raised $10,505. The casino then matched the proceed amount and donated a total of $23,446.
The grand opening for the public begins tomorrow at 1PM.
