River City casino won't reach revenue projection

The St. Louis area's newest casino is falling short of revenue projections.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the River City casino in south St. Louis County is now projected to generate slightly less than $8.2 million in its 10 months of operation this year, and a little less than $10 million in 2011.

St. Louis County Chief Operating Officer Garry Earls says officials had originally anticipated the casino would produce $15 million a year.
