After just the first day of table games you can feel an increased sense of excitement throughout the property. Combining table game with our slot machines and our mix of great dining and entertainment options creates an environment we are confident will attract visitors from across the region," said Sands Bethlehem President Robert DeSalvio.
Among the 89 tables are popular games such as blackjack, craps, roulette, poker, and baccarat. The casino already featured more than 3,000 slot machines along with two restaurants from celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse, an outpost of the famous Carnegie Deli, and several other dining and entertainment venues.
In June, the property held a ceremony which marked the restarting of construction on its 300-room hotel tower. The hotel, which will feature more than 371.6 sqm of meeting space as well as an indoor swimming pool and fitness center, should be ready to open by May 2011.
In addition to the financial benefits the property expects from the addition of table games and later the hotel, DeSalvio said company management is equally happy to be providing more than 300 new jobs during still uncertain economic times.
"It's been an exciting couple of months for the property. Restarting work on the hotel and going live with table games has been a real boost of energy for our team members," said DeSalvio. "We just passed our one-year anniversary and it is clear that this property's best days are still ahead of it. We are excited about the future and we look forward to sharing that excitement with our customers."
