Casino will open to residents. Established in Philadelphia, this will be the 11th casino to open in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
SugarHouse, which had been subject of protest by the anti-casino groups within the region, is going to open despite the opposition. The casino will open with 45,000 square feet (Sq Ft) of gaming, including 40 gaming tables as well as over 1,500 slot games.
More than 750 people will be employed by the casino.
Next Thursday the casino will open at roughly 1 PM.
Blackjack, craps, roulette, mini-baccarat, Pai-Gow Poker, and 3 and 4 card poker will all be built into the new casino. SugarHouse will lack a dedicated poker room. A high stakes are will be closed off for high rollers.
The beautifully designed casino will be water front.
Compared to online casinos, SugarHouse will contain as many different slot games, though they will lack a few table games. Pennsylvania online casinos have proven to be a major hit, however.
Atlantic City will take this 11th Pennsylvanian casino as another source of competition.
