Mini Casino Planned For York Galleria

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG (AP) – Penn National Gaming plans to set up a mini-casino in a vacant former Sears store at the York Galleria. The casino operator said it hopes to apply later this month to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. Penn National won the license in January when it bid just over $50 million for the license to operate up to 750 slot machines and 30 table games. Lawmakers authorized 10 new mini-casino licenses last year to raise money for Pennsylvania’s tattered finances. Penn National and the other owners of Pennsylvania’s 12 casinos were eligible to bid and ultimately snapped up five licenses for $127 million. Full-fledged casinos can operate up to 5,000 slot machines and at least 250 table games.
