BATON ROUGE - Pinnacle Entertainment was granted a 90-day delay by the Louisiana Gaming Control Board on Tuesday for its proposed riverboat casinos in Baton Rouge and Lake Charles. Pinnacle plans to build a $250 million gambling complex south of the LSU campus and a $350 million casino at Sugarcane Bay, which is already under construction in Lake Charles.

Pinnacle executives asked the board for the delay due to the economic crisis in the credit markets and the effects on the gambling industry. They also need the additional time for approvals for the Baton Rouge site from parish zoning officials and the Army Corps of Engineers.

The gaming board unanimously approved the request. The completion date on the Sugarcane Bay riverboat is now pushed to July 30, 2010.
