In reversal, Missouri Gaming Commission allows one landlord for area casinos Jacob Barker, St. Louis Post-Dispatch · June 26, 2020 at 6:56 am One company will soon be the landlord for every casino in the St. Louis area. The Missouri Gaming Commission voted 4-1 on Wednesday to approve the sale of the downtown St. Louis casino Lumière Place to a subsidiary of the Pennsylvania company Gaming and Leisure Properties Inc. The company is buying only the real estate. The current operator, Eldorado Resorts Inc., will continue to own the Lumière business and run the casino. Gaming and Leisure Properties, or GLPI, which spun off from casino operator Penn National Gaming Inc. in 2013, leases casino properties to operating companies. Missouri Gaming Commissioners tried to avoid this outcome two years ago.
