NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - In a major step towards expanding land-based casino gambling in the area, Treasure Chest Casino celebrated a topping off ceremony in Kenner's Lake Town. However, the ambitious development project proposed by another company for an adjoining tract appears to be on hold, despite being announced two years ago. When gambling was initially introduced in Louisiana, it promised increased revenue for public entities and the creation of hundreds of jobs. Project Manager Raymond Crochet attests to the fulfillment of these promises.
