Gov. Walker undecided on tribal casino approval Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker still hasn’t decided whether to approve a casino that is being sought by the Menominee tribe. The nearly $900 million project would locate the casino at a defunct dog track in Kenosha.

Walker has asked the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs to extend the original deadline for his decision from Aug. 23 to Feb. 19, 2015.

He said in the letter he needs more time to “develop and analyze independent data, and facilitate discussions with the interested parties.”

Usually when a high profile Las Vegas Strip property sends slot free-play solicitations to locals it is a sign their slot business is running a bit soft. After all, the hold percentages on the Strip are much higher than local casinos and about the only time locals play slots on the Strip is when they are at the property for other reasons, dinner, show or entertaining friends.
