At 10:30am, the casino will host an ‘Emerald Curtain’ reveal for the new gaming venue which features an Oz-theme. The first guests of the venue will walk along the yellow brick road to enter the casino.
The casino will feature 430 slot machines, all in Vegas-style, as well as a bingo hall, restaurants and bars.
