An expansion completed in September bumped the number of slot machines from 529 to 819. The number of table games increased from 12 to 22.

Woman charged in sex case withdraws her guilty plea
A woman charged with sex crimes against a 7-year-old boy has withdrawn her guilty plea because the judge in the case determined that the agreed-upon sentence was too short.
Katie Dube, 27, of Glenburn was scheduled to plead guilty Monday to five counts of gross sexual assault and two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
The prosecution asked for a 17-year sentence, while her defense attorney recommended a seven- to 10-year sentence.
District Court Judge Bruce Jordan said Dube should spend 21 to 25 years in prison, which prompted a tearful and apologetic Dube to withdraw her plea and opt for a jury trial.
Prosecutors say Dube and her former boyfriend abused the boy over several months earlier this year.
Child porn trial delayed for ex-Husson sports star
Jury selection in the trial of a former Maine college basketball star accused of having child pornography on his computer has stopped so the defendant can have a competency evaluation.
A judge on Monday ordered Dana Wilson, 62, of Brewer to have the evaluation to determine whether he is competent to assist in his own defense, delaying his trial.
Prosecutors told the Bangor Daily News that Wilson’s attorney filed a motion saying concerns had been raised by Wilson’s current mental health provider about his competency.
Wilson has pleaded not guilty and is free on bail.
Wilson, who averaged an NCAA Division III-leading 35 points per game during his senior season at Husson College in 1973-74, was inducted into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame this year.
