River City Casino is located approximately ten miles south of downtown St. Louis in the community of Lemay. The us$ 380 million multi-use complex captures the overall look of a Missouri riverboat town at the peak of the steamboat trade on the famed Mississippi River.
The first phase of the project will include a 90,000-square-foot casino, with more than 2,000 slot machines and more than 50 table games, several restaurants, an entertainment venue and other amenities. River City Casino is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2010, pending final approval from the Missouri Gaming Commission.
River City Casino is the sister property of Lumiere Place, a us$ 507 million casino hotel complex, which opened in downtown St. Louis in December 2007.
