COLUMBUS -- One of the state's voter-approved casinos in Columbus says it's prepared to hire more than 600 full- and part-time dealers.
The general manager of Hollywood Casino Columbus said Friday the casino was recruiting people to support over 100 table games, including 30 poker tables. Ameet Patel said the facility will identify qualified candidates and begin conducting interviews later this month.
Applicants must be at least age 21, have a high school diploma or equivalent and pass a background check. Dealer school begins in early June.
Penn National Gaming, Inc. is developing the $400 million Hollywood Casino Columbus on the city's west side. It will feature 3,000 slot machines and several restaurants. It's expected to open this fall.
Voters in 2009 also approved casinos in Cleveland, Toledo, Cincinnati and Columbus.
