PA Tries Again to Award Licenses for Five More Mini-Casinos

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania will try again to award licenses for five more mini-casinos. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on Wednesday approved a motion to restart auctions Sept. 4, under orders by a provision slipped into a budget-related bill signed by Gov. Tom Wolf. The gaming board stopped the auctions last year after it received no bids for a sixth license. The first five auctions raised $127 million, and the first mini-casino is expected to open next year.
