Mount Airy Casino And Two Other Pennsylvania Facilities Approved For Table Games

Feather News

Pennsylvania regulators approved table game applications for the Mount Airy Casino Resort and the Sands Casino Resort, which are the two closest competitors to the Mohegan Sun's Pocono Downs racetrack-slot parlor, in addition to the Hollywood Casino near Harrisburg.

A total of five facilities in Pennsylvania have received approval for table games thus far, including the Mohegan's Pocono Downs operation. These facilities will pay a one-time $16.5 million fee for the table game license and continually pay a 16 percent tax on table game revenues.
