Today is the day when the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is getting a “mini-casino” auction do-over.
The PLCB tried last year and got no takers to pay a minimum of $7.5 million to open a satellite gaming outlet.
Bids will be received today for a license to operate a slimmed-down gaming facility known as a Category 4 casino.
Cordish Cos., the Baltimore-based entertainment and real estate firm that is building “Live Casino,” (above) a full-scale casino-hotel on Packer Avenue next to the sports complex in South Philly, told PlayPennsylvania.com that it intends to bid for the new mini-casino license.
Cordish did not disclose a location where it might bid for a new casino.
Much of the state is off-limits to expansion because existing properties and approved satellite casinos are protected by a 40-mile buffer from new rivals.
