Newest Pa. casino set to open July 1 at Nemacolin

FARMINGTON, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s newest casino will open to gamblers in just over a month.

Officials announced Thursday that 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 Inc.
