Nittany Mall Mini-Casino Could Happen

Nittany Mall Mini-Casino Could Happen

There’s no doubt about the fact that casino brands are looking to expand as much as they can. Recently, there has been a certain expansion across the US with various brands vying for a spot in New York.

But this isn’t the only interesting place for casino brands as SC Gaming is looking to open a mini-casino at Nittany Mall. Centre County is the place for this casino and it’s a good move as it will help revitalize the area. However, there are some hurdles or issues that need to be tackled first.

The Project Has Had Several Delays

SC Gaming has been in the casino industry for decades which is why it makes sense for it to expand. The place has been practically chosen as the municipality in that area is looking for an economic boost. But there are certain things that need to be dealt with first.

The matter of the license needs to be solved and the owner of the location, Ira Lubert, and officials of SC Gaming will be appealing to the Pennsylvania Gaming Board for a license. If the board approves, then they will be getting a license, and if it doesn’t they can apply again after a certain period.

There’s also another hurdle that the officials behind the project need to jump over. There’s a legal case between SC Gaming and Stadium Casino that needs to be finalized and until that’s not done the project can’t really come to life.

The project will take the location of the once-famed Macy’s which means it will take up a space of 94,000 square feet. That space is going to be filled up with 30 table games, 750 slot machines as well as a sports betting area. Regular visitors won’t also be forgotten as there will be a restaurant and a bar available at the premises.

When it comes to the building process, the officials of the project will be looking to the community for help. Once the project is done, the community will be in charge of filling the job positions so they will get the boost they need. Casino fans in the area will get another casino to visit and other people that aren’t into casino games will get 2 more locations to enjoy. The municipality will also get 2% of the revenue from slot machines and 1% of the revenue that comes from table games.

This is a great project and if it comes to life everyone involved in it will benefit. But the legal case will need to be finalized and the gaming board needs to decide on approving a license or not.

Conclusion

A mall might be getting a mini-casino by SC Gaming which is a brand that deserves a place in the spotlight. The brand is facing a legal case and along with the owner of the location for the project will be making an appeal to the Pennsylvania Gaming board for a license. Time will tell if the project happens or not.
