For all casino lovers and players in Farmington, the good news is that now they won’t have to pay any access fee at Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin.
The operator has lifted the access fee. Currently, those entering the gambling facility had to pay a mandatory access fee of $10 per visit.
Churchill Downs Inc., the company which manages the casino, paid $1 million to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to revoke the $10 access fee.
The Vice President and General Manager at the Lady Luck casino, Gary Hendricks, confirmed the lifting of the access fee and said that he was pleased with the new development.
“I am excited that the barrier has been removed to allow guests to enter the casino at no charge,” said Hendricks. “In addition, I would like to thank our loyal guests who have stayed with us for almost six years in spite of this deterrent.”
“We encourage all guests to come back and check out all the ongoing changes that are occurring since our acquisition by Churchill Downs, Inc. from Eldorado Resorts, Inc. Many additional changes that will be part and parcel of Churchill Downs continued investment in Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin include new slots, new players club and benefits, and the return of valet services to the property,” he added.
State Sen. Pat Stefano welcomed the decision and commented: “This is an exciting step forward for Lady Luck Casino. I have seen firsthand people come to the casino intending to play right here in our community only to turn around and walk out the door upon learning of the access fee.”
Currently, the Lady Luck casino features 600 slot machines and 27 table games.
