HARRISBURG, Pa. (WYTV) – The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board just awarded the state’s fourth license for a mini casino.
Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment submitted the new winning bid.
A site hasn’t been determined yet, but it will fall within a 15-mile radius of South Newton Township in Cumberland County. That’s about 40 miles southwest of Harrisburg.
Greenwood’s bid was a little more than $8.1 million.
Wednesday, Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem won the fourth license to put a mini casino in Mercer County, but that changed a few hours later.
That’s because the state said the spot overlapped with another recently awarded site in Lawrence County.
