The region's newest casino is barely 18 months old, but plans are already under way for its expansion.
Pinnacle Entertainment announced today that it plans to add a 200-room hotel and 10,000-square foot event center at the River City Casino in south St. Louis County. The $82 million project also includes a parking garage with 1,700 spaces.
The St. Louis area's newest casino is falling short of revenue projections.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the River City casino in south St. Louis County is now projected to generate slightly less than $8.2 million in its 10 months of operation this year, and a little less than $10 million in 2011.
