HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) – The Gaming Control Board has approved some final adjustments to the plan to allow the public to access the gaming floor at the Valley Force casino expected to open next spring.
The Valley Forge Convention Center casino license is a different category of license than other Pennsylvania casinos already open. The gaming law anticipates that smaller “resort” casinos like Valley Forge are to be used primarily by guests of the resort.
In October, the Gaming Control Board approved the regulations for access by the general public, and on Tuesday, made some minor adjustments to the plan.
Daily visitors to the Valley Forge casino will be able to access the casino floor after spending at least $10 dollars at a restaurant or other amenity at the resort. Members of the resort’s dining club and entertainment club will also be allowed floor access.
Patrons will also be able to gain access to the gaming floor if they are attending a meeting, banquet, wedding or some other event at the facility, and for 24 hours after the event ends. And of course, overnight guests can play.
