The casino will be housed on land that was once owned by the former Southwest Airlines, and which was previously the site of a movie theater.

The casino will feature a casino floor, a number of tables for poker and roulette games, and an array of gaming options.
There will be about sixty to seventy game rooms, including five high-limit poker rooms. The casino will also feature slots and a small billiards area.
