Blatstein Frustrated by Casino Delay
Blatstein is also undeterred that four New Jersey casinos have closed this year, and another is threatened. He says the fact that Pennsylvania gambling officials have yet to award a license for a second Philly casino is upsetting.
“The frustration comes from I think there are forces trying to keep the other casino license from going out and that is the frustration,” he said. “I do believe there is a lobbyist being paid to kill the license.”
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board would not give a deadline for its decision.
