JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. ( -- Missouri’s 13 casinos could resume operation at the beginning of June, according to a decision made by the Missouri Gaming Commission Wednesday.

The gaming commission extended the closure of riverboat casinos through May 31. 

Having been closed since mid-March in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the state’s gambling facilities were originally set to open May 15.

However the date was pushed back to account for local regulations that may differ from the state's reopening plans.
