After the addition of the Las Vegas-style casino in 1987, the casino expanded again throughout the 1990’s with the inclusion of a hotel and Forest Island Restaurant. Today, the resort boasts a 33,000-square-foot casino space containing more that 850 slot machines, 8 blackjack tables, 6 poker tables and 4 table games such as roulette and craps.
