With only 6 permits being issued the MGM has made their interest known with this large proposal. The Georgia State lottery already impacts the city through funding of education with the addition of the new casinos to ATL area the voters will have the option of placing a casino in an area nearby. This offers jobs and other amenities to the city. The casino will aid H.O.P.E. Scholarship funding that will help in-state college tuition and cost for incoming qualifying collegiate students.

Bringing the gaming culture to ATL will expand the large city even more allowing it to become a real southern metropolis if it is not considered one already. Big news for the gaming industry and MGM Resorts International if everything goes to plan.
