Kenosha casino details revealed

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) – Supporters of a proposed casino in Kenosha say they are moving ahead with their plans for the $810 million, multi-phase project while they wait for approval from Gov. Scott Walker.

Some plans for the casino have been revealed. The first phase of construction would include more than 400,000 square feet and feature an entertainment venue and retail space. It would also include 2,700 slot machines, 100 table games and 24 poker games.

A temporary casino at the former Dairyland casino site would be opened while construction of the new facility is under way.

The second phase of the project would feature a hotel, spa and pool, and be completed about four years later, said Jeff Hook, vice president of marketing for Seminole Gaming, which owns Hard Rock International.
