Donald Trump Challenges Casino Law in Pennsylvania

Donald Trump and Pat Croce, former owner of the Philadelphia 76’s, are on a mission: they want to renovate the Trump Entertainment Resorts to perfection, and challenge the casino law regarding gambling and slots machines in Pennsylvania. The two plan on building a Philadelphia-based slots parlor, complete with 3,000 casino slot machines, with 2,000 more to be added later. They wish to draw in players from all over the east coast. With Planet Hollywood as their main competition, Trump’s plans for a slots-only casino could be what put him ahead of the game.

Gambling laws in Pennsylvania do not permit casino table games, but this does not seem to bother the dynamic duo. They plan on obtaining all of the necessary licenses for their slots parlor. All it will take is a lot of hard work, patience, and, of course, luck. The public might see a Philadelphia casino slots parlor yet!

So for those of you who love to play slots, keep an eye out for this new casino development. With the Trump name attached, the ‘casino’ parlor will surely have the feel of a luxurious palace as well as the thrill and excitement of an Atlantic City casino. And when you’re playing slots Trump style, you know you’re in for a treat.
