Inglewood, CA (The Hollywood Times) 10/22/2016 – The new Hollywood Park Casino on Century Boulevard in Inglewood presents as a five-star entertainment venue. It opened publicly to a flood of customers this weekend with high-roller style and many promotional activities. On Friday, a $1 million dollar raffle was held for the first 1,000 guests, and on Saturday night, a Celebrity Poker Tournament had players of all levels participating with high enthusiasm.
The brilliance of the grand opening set the perfect tone for socializing and game playing with plush accents including sparkling chandeliers, mirrors, tasteful artwork including a nod to Hollywood, and fine dining. The new 110,000 square-foot casino is larger and the table high limit has been increased. It is the first venue to open of several projects designated under the Inglewood City of Champions Revitalization Project. The new Los Angeles Rams Stadium project is scheduled to begin in 2019 and will be located next to the Hollywood Park Casino.
Celebrities in attendance included Ken Lerner, Tony Denison, Robert Costanzo, Carol Rodriguez, Zack Ward, Jess Clausen, Jimmy Clausen, Natalia Cigliuti, Jaime Maggio, Corrina Corwin, Annie Ilonzeh, Claudia Jordan, Nicholas Gonzales, Kevin Dillon, Yancy Arias, and others. They were all there to graciously support the polished launching and grand opening of The Hollywood Casino, and as one of the event collaborators, Klint Briney (BRANDed) shared, they all “look forward to the enrichment and growth in this iconic Los Angeles area.”
