State could delay casino opening,  Monday, September 20, 2010 at 11:03:44 AM

Penn National Gaming won conditional approval Thursday for its gaming license to open Hollywood Casino Perryville on Sept. 30, but a claim filed against the gaming giant by Cordish Company could delay Perryville's opening.

"We are assessing our options," said Karen Bailey, director of public affairs for Penn National Gaming. Bailey, who was at the State Lottery Commission meeting Thursday, said issues raised at the meeting would prompt the company to seek legal advice and wait for a ruling from the Maryland Attorney General. "We may know something early next week," she said Friday.

The lottery commission awarded the license Thursday contingent upon Hollywood Casino Perryville successfully conducting a controlled test and obtaining its final occupancy permit. the source
