READING, Pa. - Officials in Reading are looking into the possibility of bringing a mini-casino to the city. They say this would be a big boost for jobs and revenue.

A recently-passed measure to fund the state budget paves the way for 10 mini-casinos in Pennsylvania, so long as they are not within 25 miles of existing casinos.

Jeff Waltman, City Council [resident, believes that makes Reading a prime location.

"Right away you would think Reading becomes one of [those] targeted areas because of our locale to all the other casinos," Waltman told 69 News.

The mini-casino, or category 4 casino, could have between 300 and 750 slot machines and, eventually, up to 50 table games. 

Waltman says council will bring a resolution on Monday signaling to potential developers Reading welcomes them.

"Not only are we not shying away from it but we're very interested," said Waltman.

The city's managing director, Glenn Steckman, says the benefits such as job creation outweigh the negatives of bringing a casino to Reading.

"There are some very positive aspects to this," said Steckman. "It would allow us to help re-energize certain areas of the city."

Steckman points to the economic development around other casinos like the Sands Casino in Bethlehem. He believes the same could happen if a casino were brought to Reading.
