The official opening ceremony of the renovated and updated 150,000-square feet SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia will take place on Monday, May 9. The local officials and politicians will attend this event.
The project owner announced about the structural repairs and an increase in the area of the property, owned by the Pennsylvanian Rush Street Gaming, in 2014. The repair operations included an increase in the area of the gaming hall, opening of a new indoor parking, conference rooms, and numerous restaurants, including subdivisions of the famous Geno's Steaks, Tacconelli's Pizzeria, and Hugo's Frog Bar and Chop House.
In addition to 1,891 video slots and 103 gaming tables, the casino is ready to offer a unique poker room called Poker Night In America. It is intended for high rollers. The hall, whose area is six thousand square feet, has 28 poker tables with 252 seats. Each of them is equipped with a built-in charger. The gambling house is going to hold the first tournament on April 9 and 10. It will be attended by Joe McKeehen, the current winner of the World Series of Poker Main Event.
"Lyn Godley made a beautiful and fascinating contribution to the visual image of the establishment, - said Margot Berg, a head of Philadelphia's Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy. - We support the unique project of SugarHouse made using color, light and technologies. It has enriched the public art of our city."
Along with Wendy Hamilton, a CEO of SugarHouse Casino, and Neil Bluhm and Greg Carlin, managers of Rush Street Gaming, the opening ceremony of the renovated gambling house will be attended by Darrell Clarke, the President of Philadelphia’s City Council, U.S. Congressman Bob Brady, and State Senator Larry Farnese.
