The gaming area will increase from a current 36,000 sf to 57,000 sf, and the number of slot machines will increase from 1,000 to 1,500. Associated amenities will include a full service buffet, contemporary mid-level restaurant, a 24-hour market place, a lounge/bar, a 2-4 station food court, a center bar, and a wall bar.
