Smokers at the Hollywood Casino Columbus will soon have a second smoking patio to enjoy as the gaming venue plans on creating additional space to accommodate their guests. The facility will create a new smoking patio most likely by September and will include slot machines in the 2,000 square foot patio space.

The new patio will be located along the southwest wall of the property and will have as many as 71 slot machines under a cover for a comfortable gaming experience. Six of the gaming machines to be added will come from the casino while the remaining will be added to the casino, as completely new games.

The Hollywood Casino Columbus decided to create the new patio after they saw success with adding 21 slot machines in the first smoking patio. The new patio will cost around $700,000 to create not including the undisclosed amount paid for the new slot machines.
