The Missouri Gaming Commission has given the go-ahead to reopen the St Joe Frontier Casino, which has been closed by flooding for the last three months. Casino General Manager Craig Travers tells us that since the facility has been closed, regulators treated the reopening the same as they would the opening of a new gambling house.

Travers says the public will be allowed into the casino-proper sometime after 3pm Thursday. The restaurant and other concessions facilities will not reopen until Friday morning.
