A riverboat casino in Louisiana's capital city has been given approval to move onto land.
The Louisiana Gaming Control Board this week unanimously approved the casino’s request to move off of its aging gambling boat and into the casino’s atrium, news outlets reported. The $35 million project, which will create 200 new jobs, is expected to start construction in April and be finished by May 2024.
There will be a 16,500-square-foot gaming floor in the atrium along the riverfront in downtown Baton Rouge as well as an oyster bar/bistro that will feature a pizza station, wine bar and bowling lanes. There will also be a 2,500-square-foot sportsbook and lounge.
"We see the high traffic that that brings… as well as an energy," said Stacy Stagg, vice president of nongaming operations for CQ Holdings, which owns the casino.
