Century Casinos, Inc. planned to open its new Century Casino & Hotel in Central City on Monday, July 10, because of better-than-expected construction progress.

The "soft" opening will be followed by a full week of opening celebrations at the end of the month.

The new property includes a 60,000 square foot casino with 627 slot machines, 12 table games (including a separate Poker Room), 27 hotel rooms, retail, food and beverage amenities and a 500- space, on-site, covered parking garage.

Century Casinos owns 65 percent of this $50 million project, with an option to buy out the minority shareholder.

Central City, a historical mining town located in the Rocky Mountains approximately 33 miles west of Denver, is accessible through a new four lane highway (Central City Parkway), offering the fastest route from the greater Denver area with a population of 2.7 million people.
