A State College mini-casino project runs into stiff opposition from a Philadelphia rival

Ira M. Lubert wants to open a mini-casino in College Township, just outside State College. Cordish Gaming, which opened the Live! Casino and Hotel Philadelphia in South Philly, is challenging his application. Stadium Casino RE claims that Luberts' application violates state law because he transferred ownership stakes in the casino to undisclosed, unlicensed investors. The board will make a decision on the license at a later date.   Stadium Casino says that two wealthy real estate developers with strong Penn State ties are behind the project.

Smoking and Gambling Go ‘Hand in Hand.’ But Maybe Not for Long.

Nicole Vitola is a dealer at Atlantic City's Borgata casino. She helped found a group called Casino Employees Against Smoking Effects. The group has chapters in Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. A bill to ban casino smoking in New Jersey has enough sponsors to all but guarantee passage. It has stalled, however, because of political issues. The number of smokers in the United States has shrunk by nearly half over the past two decades. They are 12.5 percent of adults in 2020, down from 23.3 percent in 2000. Smokers make up about 21 percent. of visitors to Atlantic city and 32 percent the casino's revenue.

N.J. casino smoking talks snuffed out

A discussion between a casino executive and smoking foes was canceled. The issue of indoor smoking in casinos is a contentious one. A bill that would ban it in Atlantic City's nine casinos has been stalled in the state Legislature. It's the latest indication of how thorny this dispute has become. There are concerns about the health of casino workers and their customers.
