River City Casino Opens Today: Grab Your Oxygen Tank, Don Your Finest Sweats, Cash that Welfare Check. It's Gonna Be Fancy!

Missouri's 13th casino and the seventh within a half-hour drive of downtown St. Louis welcomes its first gamblers today.

The $357-million, 90,000-square-foot River City Casino in Lemay opens its doors at 2 p.m.

So, how long 'til the lovely people in the River City advertisement (right) are replaced by the type of gambler featured in the following photo?


My guess, is that the gorgeous gamblers will never materialize. I've never seen them at any St. Louis casino.
