On Wednesday the entrance sign at the casino site was lit with the announcement.
Close to two thirds of the open employee positions have been filled. Managers are set. Potential dealers are currently in school to learn the rules of the table games.
The casino is on track to be completed by early next year. Construction is close to being finished on the casino's exterior. Carpet is being installed on the inside.
