RICHMOND, Va. — Six casino developers have submitted proposals to the city of Richmond to be the preferred candidate for a casino resort.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported Wednesday that the state capital is one of five cities where Virginia will allow legal casino gambling.
The Richmond City Council will eventually select a preferred operator before it goes to voters in a referendum.
One of the latest contenders is Golden Nugget. It wants to build a $400 million casino resort. Another recent candidate is Wind Creek Hospitality. The gaming company is owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians from Alabama. It has proposed a $541 million casino resort.
