Port wants to attract casino development

The Port of Lake Charles wants Louisiana's 15th and final riverboat casino allowed by law to locate on its property.

The American Press reported that the port wants the casino to have a minimum $350 million investment and include a hotel, meeting rooms, entertainment facility, restaurants and amenities including a golf course.

The port has a 230-acre site that had been intended for the Sugarcane Bay project. Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. abandoned that plan earlier this year.

The Louisiana Gaming Control Board says three groups have expressed interest in the license. Formal applications are due Sept. 23.

The Lake Charles area has three riverboat casinos, a race track casino and is located near an Indian reservation casino at Kinder.
