RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. – The city of Russellville held a block party to celebrate the opening of offices for a new casino.
Terry Green, who is in partnership with the Gulfside Casino expresses that he is excited about the opening of casino and the possible success that it could have.
“It’s a wonderful feeling, that’s what we are excited about. We are excited about bringing a real resort to this area,” Green said.
The Gulfside Casino, which is a 250-million-dollar investment is expected to bring 1,500 jobs to the city.
