Maine voters have chosen to approve a new casino law. The law passed by 51 percent of the vote.

This will be the states second casino. The first being Hollywood Slots, located in Bangor. However, with the passing of the vote, the new casino project will be able to operate more than just slot machines.

The new casino resort will be located in Oxford. The estimated cost for the project is $165 million and will offer visitors game tables like black jack and craps. There will also be slot machines. The casino will open in several stages. The first phase, in addition to the casino itself, will include a café, a bar, and a restaurant. Over the following 5 years, a hotel with 200 guest rooms will be added, a lounge, additional restaurants, convention center, and a spa will also open.

Creating new jobs was the reason for many supporters of the new law. Tens of millions are expected to be generated for the economy. Maine public schools and colleges, Penobscot Passamaquoddy Indian Tribes, Oxford and the county will all benefit from the tax revenues.

The next step for the project is to choose a site for the casino. Also a casino operator also needs to be chosen. Then a state and local approval for the casino operator.

The estimated opening date will be summer 2012.
