OXFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It is full speed ahead for the people behind the Oxford Casino.
The casino's main structure is up along Route 26 and workers are finishing off the inside. On Thursday, there was a symbolic moment for the operators of the casino: the placement inside of the first slot machine.
The casino will open with about 500 of these machines operating. The owners say they are committed to eventually putting in another 1,000 slots, living up to their promise to Maine voters who approved this facility.
Those machines will be spread out across the casino building, with 12 table games set up between them. About 90 workers will now have to be trained to run those games.
The casino is scheduled to open in early summer.
