State Awards First Mini-Casino License

The state Gaming Control Board issued its first license for a mini-casino on Wednesday.

During an auction, Penn National Gaming submitted a winning bid of $50 million and now has the right to put up a casino in York County (in southeastern Pennsylvania). Penn National currently operates a full casino in suburban Harrisburg.

Wednesday’s auction was the first of 10 that will be held this year. Mini casinos will be about one-quarter the size of existing casinos, permitted to have up to 750 slot machines and roughly 30 table games.
