North Carolina lawmakers propose plans for four new casinos
North Carolina lawmakers are contemplating a budget plan that could lead to the establishment of up to four new casinos in the state, in Anson, Nash, and Rockingham counties
Legislators in North Carolina are discussing a budget plan that could see up to four new casinos, referred to as "entertainment districts," being built in Anson, Nash, and Rockingham counties.
While the plans are still in the proposal stage, lawmakers would need to legalize video gambling, with regulation falling under the state lottery commission.
Along with the casinos, the concept includes additional developments like retail, restaurants, hotels, and housing.
A recent study indicated that the new casinos could generate nearly $1.7 billion in wagers and hundreds of millions in taxes.
