Silverton takes on the East Coast with new casino


 Silverton Casino Hotel announces it has reached an agreement with Black Bear Development to support the development and operations of Black Bear Casino’s project in Oxford, ME. The Oxford Casino project is now under construction and will open to the public in Spring 2012.

Craig Cavileer, President of Silverton Casino Hotel, said he is pleased to bring the company’s extensive expertise to Maine.

“We are privileged to have the opportunity to work with Black Bear,” Cavileer said. “As the only casino in Las Vegas that was designed to replicate the look and feel of a true New England lodge, we believe that our Silverton team is uniquely positioned to make this exciting Maine project a resounding success.”

“We are looking forward to working with black bear to develop the brand for the casino, its marketing and promotional programs and its overall position in the marketplace,” Cavileer continued.

Both companies have announced that executive recruitment will begin today, Wednesday, September 21, for the new casino, the first full casino with table games in northern New England. Interested candidates can go to for positions currently being recruited.
