River City Casino is a casino in Lemay, Missouri, in the greater St. Louis area. It is owned by Gaming and Leisure Properties and operated by Penn National Gaming. It opened on March 4, 2010.

History

Located in Lemay, Missouri, River City Casino is on the western bank of the Mississippi River. The property’s decor uses a 1904 World’s Fair theme. Built for an initial $380 million, the project’s second phase requires an additional $75 million investment within the first three years for construction of a hotel. In 2010, the Riverfront Times named River City Casino the Best St. Louis Casino in their annual awards.

In April 2016, Pinnacle Entertainment sold the property to Gaming and Leisure Properties and leased it back, along with almost all of Pinnacle’s real estate assets. Penn National Gaming acquired River City’s operations in October 2018 as part of the acquisition of Pinnacle.
