Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin plans to open for business on July 1, officials with the Fayette County resort and Isle of Capri Casinos Inc. announced Thursday.

The $60 million casino at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort still must obtain state regulatory approvals. The property will feature 600 slot machines, 28 table games, a restaurant and a lounge.

Nemacolin Woodlands holds the casino license and is partnering with Isle of Capri to run the operation. Isle of Capri in 2006 attempted to win Pittsburgh's casino license with plans to build Uptown and pay for a new Penguins arena.

Patrons at Lady Luck Nemacolin will be required to spend at least $10 at the resort before being allowed into the casino, per state law governing its special resort casino license. It would be Pennsylvania's 12th casino.
