BUFFALO - The temporary Buffalo Creek Casino has expanded while the permanent casino is under construction. Since opening last July the casino has averaged 30,000 visitors per month, so 2,500 square feet have been added to accommodate 109 new slot machines.
Phil Pantano, a Seneca Gaming spokesman, said "It wasn't uncommon for patrons to be waiting in line, standing in line for a machine to open."
The permanent casino will cost $333-million and include a hotel. It will open in the spring of 2010. "We have crews on site driving piles into the ground and excavating the site to get ready for the foundation for the project," said Pantano.
"That will be the largest, single private investment in the history of the city of Buffalo," said Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown.
