BANGOR, Maine — Hollywood Casino Hotel & Raceway has hired an additional 12 people as a result of the expansion of one of its newest table games.

The casino is expanding the hours that guests can play craps, a game the casino has offered since December in which patrons bet money on the results of a dice roll, due to its popularity, according to a news release.

“This is a direct reflection of the feedback we have received from our customers,” John Osborne, the casino’s general manager, said in a statement. “Customer demand brought us craps late last year, and it has been such a popular game that we are expanding its hours, which is also allowing us to hire new employees.”

Hollywood Casino has added 12 employees as a result of the expanded hours.

Craps is one of 16 table games at the casino, including poker, blackjack, roulette and three-card poker.

The casino plans to offer future dealer-training courses, and those interested should contact its human resources department, the release said.
