Investors Seek Slots In Gettysburg

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) – Could Gettysburg be the next location in Pennsylvania to get approved for slots?

Gettysburg businessman Dave LeVan and a group of unidentified investors are seeking a Category III slots license.

That category restricts the size of a facility to no more than 500 machines limits patronage to hotel guests, or pass-holders.

The Gaming Control Board rejected a LeVan-backed project in 2006 because of its proximity to the Gettysburg Battlefield.

This time, investors are eyeing the 307-room Eisenhower Inn and Conference Center in Cumberland Township as a possible location. That land already has commercial development on it.
