Penn National Gaming have been expanding their land-based casino estate in recent years, however it appears they are slowly winding down the number of new casinos they open up and have stated that they are hoping to acquire one final license for the time being.
They have just applied for a license that will see them possibly opening up a mini casino near Route 10, I-176 in the Caernarvon Township, and it does look like that is a license they may just be able to secure.
What you may call a mini casino however, and what Penn National Gaming call a mini casino are possibly two different things, for the land on which that casino is going to be located covers a huge 36 acres, and they are planning on having a huge 80,000 square foot property on the land.
Inside that casino they are planning on having around 750 gaming machines, and with 30 gaming tables it should appeal to gamblers living nearby. They also have plans to have dining facilities and entertainment available there too.
Local Township Supervisors have warmed to the idea of this mini casino, for it will offer them an income stream by way of local taxes and will also provide employment for local residents too. It is also located in such a place that there should no difficulties in gamblers and visitors being able to get to it quickly and easily.
If everything does go to plan the casino could be open and welcoming visitors by 2020, and apart from a few objections, as is always to be expected when a casino is possibly going to be opened in any area, local residents have embraced the idea of having a mini casino nearby.
