Fayette County, Pa.-based Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin, which will be operated by Isle of Capri Casinos, created over 350 construction jobs, received approximately 2,500 job applications and hired over 500 employees.

“Isle of Capri is thrilled to open our flagship Lady Luck casino at one of the most magnificent resort complexes in the United States,” said Virginia McDowell, Isle's president and chief executive officer, in a prepared statement. “We have been welcomed with open arms into Fayette County. The enthusiasm for this project has been remarkable and we are proud to share Lady Luck with the community and Nemacolin Woodlands guests as well.”

Nemacolin Woodlands is one of North America's premier resort destinations, earning a Forbes Travel Guide Four‐Star rating and a AAA Four Diamond Rating. Nemacolin Woodlands has also been honored as one of Travel + Leisure magazine's 500 Best Hotels in the World. Situated on over 2,000 acres, the resort features 335 luxurious guestrooms, suites, townhouses and private luxury homes, including the Falling Rock boutique hotel and clubhouse. In addition to the internationally acclaimed Woodlands Spa, the resort features the Lautrec Restaurant and offers 36 holes of golf on two championship courses.

“We are so proud to see all of the details come together to bring this new amenity to our guests,” said Maggie Hardy Magerko, president and owner of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. “The transformation of a building that was once a bowling alley and arcade into this magnificent casino is extraordinary. I am quite sure that our guests will be as impressed as I have been.”
