Mojito Pointe Wins Casino License
Since the 2005 closing of Harrah's, it has been the question for Lake Charles, and really the state of Louisiana... Who's getting the other casino license? That question is now answered.
The company is Creative Casinos LLC. Their new casino, if voters allow it, will be "Mojito Pointe."
Board member Robert Jones said Mojito Pointe would generate the most revenue and jobs, noting that it is projected to employ 2,000 people, more than the other two projects combined.
"It will be a world-class facility that all Louisianans can be proud of," he said.
The referendum is up for a vote in Lake Charles on April 30th. If approved the casino could be open by the end of 2013.
