Could water baptize a river district in to a entertainment and casino destination and attract tourists? Officials with Yankton Area growth that is progressive believe it could.
Former State Senator Bernie Hunhoff talks in regards to the proposed Port Yankton task that includes a casino. It is being arranged by Yankton Area Progressive development group and its own president John Kramer (left).
The team provided a plan previously this week to construct a location near the Missouri River that would incorporate a casino, restaurants, music space, river access, convention space, waterparks, retail area, a downtown marina as well as an excursion watercraft to compliment the historic buildings already here. The cost could be between $30-50 million and would be privately funded by investors.

The casino would include 500 slots and 10 table games, and along with hotel revenue, would bring within an estimated $32-$40 million yearly. Deadwood, which has had controversy surrounding expansion, has seven gaming spots to make bets into the historic town where Wild Bill Hickok ended up being shot dead at a poker table in 1876.
