YOUNGSTOWN Ohio -- The proposed Lawrence Downs Casino and Racetrack Resort in Mahoning Township, Pa., would have 1,250 slot machines, 41 table games and 10 poker games, according to the developers' application posted at the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board's website.
The application was submitted by Endeka Entertainment and Penn National Gaming Inc., partners in the $160 million harness racing an casino venture.
According to a report in the New Castle News, "On the Endeka Entertainment application, a box was checked acknowledging that a principal or key employee had been “charged with or convicted of a criminal offense, been a party to or named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal proceeding.” Also checked was a box indicating the applicant or an affiliate, intermediary, subsidiary or holding company had a judgment order, consent decree or consent order that resulted in a fine or penalty of $50,000 or more."
The newspaper also noted that where explanations were provided of these incidents, the application was redacted or blacked out.
