BANGOR, Maine — Hollywood Casino Hotel and Raceway has added two more gaming tables to deal with customer demand in time for the holiday weekend.

Just over two months after debuting 14 total table games, four of which were Texas Hold ’Em poker tables, the casino is adding two more poker tables.

“We received state approval to expand by two more tables,” said Dan Cashman, spokesman for Hollywood Casino. “We would routinely have waiting lists for people waiting to get on poker tables during busy nights, so the demand was there.”

According to figures supplied by Maine’s Gambling Control Board, net revenue for the entire casino was slightly down in April compared to March this year. Net revenue was $5,094,360.63 while March’s net was $5,779,788.56. So far this year, the casino’s to tal net revenue is $20,270,308.17.

The new tables are located adjacent to the existing poker tables in the Race Book lounge.

“Customers are excited to have a number of gaming options, from slots to blackjack to Texas Hold ’Em to harness racing,” said John Osborne, Hollywood Casino general manager. “As we enter into the holiday weekend and the busy tourist season, we are prepared for larger crowds to enter our doors.”
