Riverboat gaming gets another chancePosted Wednesday, March 10, 2010, at 3:06 PM
The President Casino in St. Louis voluntarily gave up its gaming license today, leaving one available license statewide.
This gives new hope to developers in Cape Girardeau whose previous casino plans died when Proposition A passed in 2008. This measure limited the number of available gaming licenses thus preventing the Missouri Gaming Commission from reviewing any new applications.
Do you think a riverboat casino would be a good addition to downtown Cape? Why or Why not?
