Voters will decide if there will be a new casino in Oxford County. The $100 million proposal will bring 800 new jobs to western Maine. The site for the proposed casino will be announced soon. Previously in September, a press conference was held to unveil the concept and design plans.

The proposed casino will host 20 games, over a thousand slot machines, restaurants, a sports bar, indoor pool, meeting spaces, and a 125 room hotel.

Question 2 on the ballot will lower the legal age to work in the casino from 21 to 18. The minimum gambling age will go from 21 to 19. It will also erase the amount of slot machines allowed in the state. 80% of the 800 approximate jobs will be full time with $35,000 as the median salary. There will also be an additional $17,000 in benefits. 39% of the total gross gaming device income will be distributed to state agencies and programs. 2% will go to the casino's town. 1% will go to Oxford County.
