Harrah’s to invest in long-stalled Philadelphia casino

(US).- Harrah's Entertainment has signed an agreement to invest in and manage the long-stalled Foxwoods casino project in South Philadelphia. It's contingent on approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.


he project hasn't had a lead investor since billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn backed out in April. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Harrah's and the Foxwoods partners have a deal to put up a us$ 438 million gaming hall on South Columbus Boulevard.

Doug Harbach, a spokesman for the gaming board, says officials will need time to review the paperwork before making a decision.

The casino would be the second in Philadelphia, which became the largest city in the country with casino gambling when the Sugarhouse Casino opened in the city's Fishtown/Northern Liberties neighborhood last month.
