LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Four more applications have been submitted to operate casinos in Arkansas.
Thursday was the deadline to submit an application to operate casinos in Jefferson or Pope County under an amendment that voters approved last year. The state received applications Thursday for a Pope County casino from the Cherokee Nation, Tri-Peaks Entertainment Group LLC, Robert and Ruth Kehl Family and the Choctaw Nation. The state had previously received an application from Gulfside Casino Partnership.
Only one application has been submitted for Jefferson County, from the Downstream Development Authority.
