BATON ROUGE - Pinnacle Entertainment was granted a 90-day delay by the Louisiana
Gaming Control Board on Tuesday for its proposed riverboat casinos in Baton
Rouge and Lake Charles. Pinnacle plans to build a $250 million gambling complex
south of the LSU campus and a $350 million casino at Sugarcane Bay, which is
already under construction in Lake Charles.
Pinnacle executives asked the board for the delay due to the economic crisis in
the credit markets and the effects on the gambling industry. They also need the
additional time for approvals for the Baton Rouge site from parish zoning
officials and the Army Corps of Engineers.
The gaming board unanimously approved the request. The completion date on the
Sugarcane Bay riverboat is now pushed to July 30, 2010.
