(Jefferson City) The leader of the Missouri Gaming Commission isn’t expecting many changes in the state’s casinos in the coming year.
The COVID-19 pandemic shut them down from mid-March to the end of May in 2020, costing the state about a million dollars a day in revenue.
Commission chair Mike Leara says the industry has bounced back this year.
Some interests are calling for a 14th Missouri casino to be built at the Lake of the Ozarks.
For now, state law only allows the licensing of 13 casinos in Missouri.
