We want your opinion—how do you think Harrah's new ownership will affect the attractions at our local casino?
The Harrah’s Casino sale seems to benefit two casino companies in different ways, STL Today reported Monday. Caesars Entertainment needed a cash infusion, the newspaper said, while Penn National will have a larger share of the St. Louis Market. Penn National already owns the Argosy Casino Alton—making Penn and competitor company Pinnacle Entertainment as owners of two St. Louis area casinos, according to STL Today.

Or is the Argosy Alton so much fun it needs a sister casino locally? Be sure to let us know in the comments!

Missouri and 43 other states are considering how to proceed now that the government is looking at an old law in a new way.

As I purchase my groceries or fill up my tank at the gas station, I just don't think about it. The gift of gaming? So, what if a person could buy lottery tickets online?
