No Casino License In Pope County Until Lawsuits Are Settled

The awarding of license for the prospective Pope County casino is on hold. The Arkansas Racing Commission has confirmed that they would not be issuing any license until the outcomes of the lawsuits in regards to the licensing processes are clear.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports the gambling operator had already made the decision in a meeting on Thursday earlier this week.

Following a popular vote, Arkansas is to have four casinos in Jefferson and Pope counties and at racetracks in Hot Springs and West Memphis. However, the Pope County casino bidding process has been embroiled in controversies and there have been lawsuits questioning the license award process.

Earlier in the year, in August, the Arkansas Racing Commission opened a new window for accepting fresh applications for awarding a casino license in Pope County after a Mississippi-based company filed a lawsuit against the commission for denying its request to reconsider its application which was earlier denied by the gambling authority.

Four applicants tendered their proposal for a pope county casino before the deadline set by the Russellville City Council’s gaming review panel.

Of those contending for a Pope County casino license are Cherokee Nation Businesses of Oklahoma, Kehl Management of Iowa, Warner Gaming of Nevada and Choctaw Nation Division of Commerce of Oklahoma.

The Gulfside Casino Partnership which had earlier placed its proposal for Pope county casino did not submit its proposal as the company has already sued the Arkansas Racing Commission when the earlier applications were rejected.
