According to documents submitted in August to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Evitts Resort plans to move ahead with opening a slots parlor at Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort sometime late next summer. Evitts Resort, completed a transaction to purchase the lodge earlier this summer. While there was great enthusiasm for the original Evitts proposal which called for the construction of an adjacent slots facility- an abruptly announced scaled back version utilizing existing conference space instead of a new stand alone building is a concern for the Allegany County Commissioners. The Evitts group had trouble securing financing for construction of a new facility- but remain convinced that the new plan will prove profitable for all parties.
