BANGOR, Maine — Executives at a Bangor gambling facility held a press conference Thursday, March 1, 2012 to announce the name change from “Hollywood Slots Hotel & Raceway” to “Hollywood Casino Hotel & Raceway.”

“The past four months have been very exciting since voters in Penobscot County gave their approval for table games at Hollywood Casino Hotel & Raceway,” said John Osborne, general manager of Hollywood Casino. “With addition of games like poker, roulette and blackjack complementing our existing offerings of slots, harness racing and live entertainment, visitors to Hollywood Casino have a complete entertainment package to enjoy right here in Bangor.”

The table games are scheduled to begin operation at the facility on March 16.
