The first of two phases of the project will begin in September, with the casino floor getting new slot bases, carpets and chairs, and an updated poker room. The VIP offices and toilets will also be updated.
The first phase, which is expected to cost $ 2 million, is expected to be completed by Thanksgiving.
Work on the second phase, which will include the renovation of the restaurants and front areas of the house, is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2022.
