Since New Jersey voters rejected casino expansion in the Garden State, Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem is planning a $90 million expansion.
More slot machines and table games….a short ride from New Jersey. The Sands project would give the casino the largest gaming floor among the dozen Pa. casinos.
Hey Atlantic City….did ya know? Half of SANDS PA. casino gamblers come from North Jersey.
Pending state regulatory approval, Sands Bethlehem could begin construction on the expansion as soon as January. It would need approval for exceeding a state cap set at 250 table games.
The casino had more than $500 million in gambling revenue in 2015. Statewide gaming win was a little more than $3 billion.
