Up to now, gamblers have only been able to play slot machines at Nebraska’s two racetrack casinos. But that may change soon. The Grand Island Casino Resort wants to expand its temporary operation at Fonner Park to add table games.
Vincent Fiala, the casino’s general manager, said it plans to add craps, roulette and blackjack tables to its existing operation.
The planned expansion also would include additional slot machines, restrooms on the casino floor, an expanded dining area and space for entertainment on the weekends.
The planned changes, Fiala said, will allow guests to “have as much of a resort experience as they can in the temporary facility,” which currently has about 300 slot machines.
