Hialeah Park casino to open summer 2013
Construction of a new casino at Hialeah Park is nearing completion, with the expected opening date sometime in June or July. Hialeah, which concludes its live Quarter Horse race meet this month, started the fight for slots in 2008. According to the Sun Sentinel, some estimates for monthly revenue for the track are as high as $2 million.
Once the $100 million overhaul is complete, attendees will enter the grandstand through the north entrance, and will be able to enjoy food at the facility's Havana Cafe. Patrons who sign up for the player's club on the casino's website starting April 1 “will get a little extra bonus” according to general manager Steve Calabro. The casino plans to distinguish itself from neighboring Magic City Casino and Casino Miami Jai-Alai with higher slot payouts and better customer service.
