Live! Casino Projected to Generate $200 Million in Annual Economic Impact and Create Approximately 1,460 New Jobs for the Region

 

Stadium Casino, LLC, an affiliate of The Cordish Companies, presented plans to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for a proposed Category 4 satellite gaming facility to be developed at the Westmoreland Mall in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County, PA, located directly off Route 30, approximately 30 miles from downtown Pittsburgh.

The presentation for the new Live! Casino was made during a Public Input Hearing, where Cordish representatives gave an overview of the 100,000-square-foot gaming, dining and entertainment destination, which will take over a space formerly occupied by the Bon-Ton department store. The Live! facility will be part of the popular 1.3-million-square-foot Westmoreland Mall development.

The Live! project, which represents an investment of $150 million, will be a world-class gaming, dining and entertainment destination, featuring 750 slots and electronic table games and approximately 30 live action table games; plus, nationally-recognized restaurants and live entertainment venues.

Live! Casino is projected to generate $200 million in annual economic impact, with an additional $148 million in economic impact from construction, including approximately 960 direct and indirect construction jobs, plus more than 500 permanent new jobs for local and regional residents. In addition, the Project will create numerous construction and operations vendor opportunities for local, minority, women-owned, and veteran-owned businesses, along with considerable support for local charities and non-profits.

Project plans are subject to the review and approval of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. Once approved, a construction timeline will be determined.

“We look forward to working with the Gaming Control Board, Hempfield Township and Westmoreland County to create a first-class gaming and entertainment destination that will generate millions of new tax dollars and create hundreds of new jobs for the region,” stated Joe Weinberg, Partner in Stadium Casino, LLC.

In strange and puzzling development in California, two nuns stole $500,000 from a Catholic school and used the money on gambling and vacations. Sister Mary Margaret Kreuper and Sister Lana Lang of St. James Catholic School in Torrance had been diverting funds from the school to their own bank account for at least 10 years, the Press-Telegram reports.

Kreuper, who was the school’s principal, handled all tuition checks and fees. She even withheld some checks and deposited them into an account only she and Chang knew about.

The two sisters offered some of the stolen money back to the school; the rest was used for their “personal gain.”

Kreuper and Chang used the stolen money on sightseeing trips and casino gambling.

The council of District of Columbia (DC) has moved further closer to the realisation of the bill that would make sports betting legalised in the state. The second and final vote on the “Sports Wagering Lottery Amendment Act of 2018” is expected to be held in the December 18 legislative session.

The DC council decides to move quickly as the neighbouring states, such as Maryland and Virginia, are seen as moving fast.

However, David Grosso, one of the members of the council that voted against the bill, said that it is possible that they are moving too fast: “This rush to make D.C. the first jurisdiction in the region to legalise sports betting gives me great pause as we do not fully understand the impact it will have on our communities.”

The bill establishes two categories of licences, one for establishments such as restaurants and bars, and one for major sports stadiums in city limits. Another member of the Council said that he expects to have a sports betting market ready to start for the 2019 baseball season.
