PA Gaming Control Board to Award Final Resort Casino License

Last Month, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board held licensing hearings for the state’s final Category 3 resort casino license. TMG supported Isle of Capri in its bid for this license with Nemacolin Woodlands Resort by performing a series of analyses and making revenue, visitation, cannibalization, and socioeconomic impact projections for our client. Dr. Anthony Mumphrey, President of TMG Consulting, served as a key expert witness before the Board, testifying that “as a true resort casino [Lady Luck at Nemacolin] will be a superior location and generate and maintain more visitors, permanent jobs, income and taxes for the Commonwealth than the other Applicants”. The plans for the Lady Luck at Nemacolin casino were very well received by the Board and widely praised in the press. The PGCB is expected to announce the winning applicant for the license in January 2011.
