Valley Forge Casino opening announced


Valley Forge Casino Resort will officially open March 31. 

That's the word from officials of the mini-gambling den that is part of the sprawling Valley Forge Convention Center complex in King of Prussia.

According to a press release, the gaming hall-which as the holder of a category 3" state gaming licence, can have a maximum of 600 slot machine/video terminals and 50 table games--will open after two days of state-mandated play-money casino tests scheduled for  March 27 and 29.

The "category 3" designation means the casino can only be patronized by people who are on property as guests in the adjoining 486-room hotel, attending a convention or trade show at the Convention Center or dining in one the casino's seven restaurants. Three-month and year-long memberships are also being offered to accommodate admittance.

Valley Forge will enjoy its status as the region's newest betting parlor for all of 48 hours. April 2 , the $2.4 billion Revel mega-resort opens to the public in Atlantic City.
