1. Wynn Philadelphia

2001 Beach Street
Philadelphia, PA 19125

Wynn claims that the casino would anchor the riverfront redvelopment plan and "connect residents to the river for the first time in 200 years," which seems like a bit of a stretch. The casino would, however, come with a public riverfront park.

2. Hollywood Casino

Packer Avenue & South 7th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19148

The Hollywood Casino is otherwise unspectacular, but it would be majority owned by a public benefit nonprofit with the express purpose of raising money for the city employee pension fund the school district.

3. Casino Revolution

Pattison Avenue & South Front Street
Philadelphia, PA 19148

The biggest proposed casino is also the furthest away from residential areas, which the developers have noted as a plus.

4. The Provence

North Broad Street & Callowhill Street
Philadelphia, PA 19130

It's a "french resort" on Broad Street with a casino attached. The selling point is the rooftop open air market and the green space in front.

5. Live! Hotel and Casino

900 Packer Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19148

This is the only casino proposed by companies who already operate entertainment in the area. It's essentially a big box full of slot machines.

6. Market 8

Market Street & North 8th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19107

Allegedly "family friendly," Market 8 will have lots of shops and restaurants open to the public. The selling point is also the biggest drawback: it is literally right in the middle of Philadelphia.
