Arizona Charlie’s East, one of Carl Icahn’s Las Vegas properties, recently broke ground on an expansion that will enhance casino options with an enlarged and improved race and sports book, and new 24-hour, 500-seat bingo hall.

The expansion will consist of three floors and is slated to be completed by summer 2002. The three floors include: 5,400-square-feet of casino space earmarked for a new 50-seat race and sports book, and more than 175 new slot and video poker machines. There will also be an 8,100-square-foot, 500-seat bingo hall. The bingo hall will be the only 24-hour bingo operation on the Boulder Strip and will feature some of the lowest prices in town.
