Casino Applications Due By End of Day Today

If you want to open up the second casino in Philly, you’d better get moving: the application deadline is today (looking at you, Blatstein). With applications due to the Pennsylvania Gaming Board by the end of business today, five groups are vying for the license, including Wynn Resorts, Penn National Gaming and The Goldenberg Group. Only one group, Parkway Corp., has pulled out of the running, with president Robert Zuritsky saying his company doesn’t “have all the pieces together.” Wanna take over Zuritsky’s spot? Be sure you have that cool $50 million to hand over to the Gaming Board once you win–I hear casino guys don’t like waiting around for their money. [Washington Examiner]
