Pennsylvania Casino Pays Tens of Millions to offer Blackjack and other gamesThe state of Pennsylvania recently made it legal for casinos and other gaming facilities to offer table games such as blackjack and roulette. But to begin offering these games the facilities must purchase a licensing fee from the state which can get very expensive. The latest casino to pay the licensing fee was the Presque Isle Downs and Casino in Pennsylvania.
The casino paid$16.5 million in licensing fees to be able to offer their players blackjack, roulette and other casino table games. The fee was paid on Friday which was ahead of the June 1st deadline. There are ten casinos in the area and according to Richard McGarvey, who is a spokesman for the Gaming Control Board of the state; each casino paid their fee on time.
The table games are expected to be launched during Fourth of July weekend. A date has not been officially set but it is expected that the blackjack and other table games will be added at this time. The casino of Presque Isle Downs is set to offer 48 table games to their offerings of 2,000 slot machines.
