Newest PA casino set to open July 1 at Nemacolin

Written by The Associated Press | May 26, 2013 7:39 AM

(Farmington) -- Pennsylvania's newest casino will open to gamblers in just over a month.

The $60 million Lady Luck Casino outside Pittsburgh will open on July 1 at noon, pending regulatory approvals.

Lady Luck Casino is part of the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Fayette County.

It will feature 600 slot machines, 28 table games, a restaurant and a lounge.

Earlier this week, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved a plan to charge non-resort guests a $10 entry fee to the casino.

Nemacolin is one of two facilities in the state with a resort casino license.

Those casinos are meant to be an amenity to a resort and not a draw unto themselves.

Lady Luck is operated by St. Louis-based Isle of Capri Casinos.
