Hollywood Casino

Maryland Heights, MO

Energizing the Gaming Experience

Faced with an enormous “first impressions count” challenge, Penn National Gaming turned to PayneCrest to transform a newly acquired gaming venue into the glitzy Hollywood Casino without disrupting ongoing gaming operations. PayneCrest earned AGC Keystone Award honors by managing 16 fluctuating job assignments, an unrelenting deference to casino customers, an unpredictable and expanded scope of work, strict gaming compliance issues, and even a tornado strike.


Slot machines wired, rewired electrical feeds for new signage and entertainment features, including an enormous home-size digital television, and upgraded all lighting, communications and security.


Improvement in maintenance efficiencies through modified design and creating a more intuitive electrical layout.


Man hours with no recordable injuries.
