The Maine Gambling Control Board yesterday approved a license for the Oxford Casino, one of the last steps before the casino can open later this year.
The board voted 4-0 in favor of the license, according to The Associated Press. The casino is expected to open in two months. Spokesman Scott Smith said installation of its 500 slot machines is under way, and that operators have begun training its 350-person staff. It held a job fair in March that attracted 500 people.
The casino will also have 12 table games when it opens in June.
