LAKE CHARLES - A proposed casino in Lake Charles is expected to cost less than first thought.

Pinnacle Entertainment says the Sugarcane Bay project will come in at $305 million. This is 100 million less than earlier estimated.

This does mean that new development plans are in the works.

The company will meet with the State Gaming Board December 15th.
