This will bring the total number of employees on site to 1,800.
The casino is currently looking to hire cleaners, cocktail servers, waitstaff, dealers for card games and bartenders. Jobs that are non-tipping pay $12 an hour and are based on experience. Individuals who qualify will be provided with workers dental, vision and health insurance plus retirement benefits.
