The Red Hawk Casino drew a full house Wednesday night as thousands braved the cold, fought traffic and opened tight pocketbooks to check out the state's newest Indian gambling site.
Casino officials estimated that 10,000 people arrived by 6 p.m. The Shingle Springs facility allowed guests in hours earlier than its scheduled 7 p.m. opening in hopes of avoiding traffic backing up on Highway 50 near the casino's offramp. But by 8:30 p.m., eastbound traffic on Highway 50 was backed up about one mile.
Inside, guests queued up at the 2,000 slot machines, squeezed into seats at 75 gambling tables and sampled fare at the casino's six restaurants.
