If spending $9+ on ball park beers isn’t enough, the groups that brought you Xfinity Live and Parx Casino are attempting to give you even more ways to lose your money in South Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia Business Journal reports:

Cordish has formed a joint venture ā€” dubbed Stadium Casino LLC ā€” with
Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment Inc. to apply for a gaming license
for a 200,000-square-foot casino on the site of the existing Stadium
Holiday Inn at 900 Packer Ave. The casino would include 2,000 slot
machines and 125 table games.

I wonder if the new proposed casino would do away with the secret tunnel from the Holiday in to the ball park?
