Bloomsburg Open to Mini Casinos

On Monday, March 12, Bloomsburg Town Council passed a resolution which would allow a “mini casino” to locate in the Town. Pennsylvania is making 10 Category 4 casino licenses available through an auction process currently underway. Local municipalities have the option as to whether or not they would allow such establishments. Several other municipalities in Columbia and Montour counties are also open to consideration.

A Category 4, or “mini casino”, may operate between 300 and 750 slot machines and 30 table games. Such establishments could also serve alcohol and provide live entertainment. Additional information is available on the PA Gaming Control Board’s website.

Members are being asked to provide input on whether or not a casino in our area would potentially benefit your business, and if you are in favor of one being located here. It is just a brief three-question survey that shouldn’t take any more than 30 seconds of your time. Thanks in advance for the feedback.
