The St. Jo Frontier Casino in Missouri is working on enhancements after a February state Gaming Commission report revealed declining numbers. The report said that along with a 3 percent revenue dip, admissions also fell last month by 11 percent compared to last year.
Casino Vice President Jim Simms attributed the declining performance to the winter season, the St. Joseph News-Press reported. But despite the numbers, Simms said casino turnout wasn't poor.
He told the newspaper, "Actually business was pretty good for us. We're pretty healthy where we are. We're starting to see a lot of the business come back. I think we've done pretty well so far."
Improvements for the casino include new employee uniforms, advertising billboards and new food items. Additional plans include remaking the gaming floor's bar, creation a dining area nearby and more attentive customer service. The improvement plan is set to begin in April.
The casino’s parent company is Affinity Gaming of Las Vegas.
