Islanders should be able to play Texas hold 'em at the Charlottetown Driving Park Entertainment Centre within the next three to four weeks.

The Atlantic Lottery Corporationis installing four poker tables at the centre.

"Right now, there's a number of poker dealers who are getting trained in terms of the game, and as well in terms of responsible gambling and those services that are offered at the gaming floor," said Paula Dyke of Atlantic Lottery.

Dyke said most of the 23 dealers hired are people from Prince Edward Island.
