Oxford Casino marks one year with special events

Oxford Casino is hosting several days of special events from Wednesday, June 5, to Sunday, June 9, in honor of the casino's one-year anniversary, according to the Oxford gaming destination, which boasts 793 slot machines and 22 table games.
Each day, Oxford Casino will give away a limited edition T-shirt to the first 500 people (age 21 and older) who walk through the door. Oxford Casino is also offering ways to earn entries into a special drawing to win a 2013 Corvette Coupe. Oxford Casino expects thousands of guests from around New England to visit during the one-year anniversary celebration, according to a press release about the event.
Since opening its doors on June 5, 2012, Oxford Casino has attracted well over a million guests to its table games, slot machines and restaurant, Oxford Grill, the press release stated. The casino has so far generated more than $23.8 million in tax revenue for the state of Maine from table games and slot machines, the press release stated. The anniversary celebration will highlight the successes of the casino — from the facility's expansion to the creation of approximately 450 new jobs, of which 90 percent were filled by Maine residents, the press release stated.
"We'd like to share this important milestone with as many people as possible," said Jack Sours, vice president and general manager of Oxford Casino. "It took a lot of Maine people — from voters to employees to vendors to neighboring businesses — to make Oxford Casino a success. This anniversary is our opportunity to celebrate each and every person who has supported us."
Oxford Casino will make additional announcements about events, opportunities and giveaways celebrating the one-year anniversary over the coming days. More information is available online at www.oxfordcasino.com.
