After a months-long advertising blitz, Wind Creek Casino opened for business Tuesday to a capacity crowd of 3,000 visitors, who kept the resort's bingo machines busy and restaurants full, managers said.
"We had a $15,000 winner within the first 15 minutes," said Brent Pinkston, vice president of marketing for PCI Gaming. "It has been a crazy day here."
Parking lots were jammed with license plates from northern Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Georgia, Texas and even Illinois. Pinkston said the crowd overflowed parking lots most of the day, with many first-time visitors to the bingo operation at Interstate 65's exit 57.
