    A company that sought but failed to win voter approval to build a casino in Slidell is expected to win a bit more time Thursday to decide on what to do with its license for the casino it operated but shut down in Bossier City.

    The Louisiana Gaming Control Board is meeting in Baton Rouge to decide the next step for P2E, an investment company based in Richmond, Va., that wanted to move its license for the DiamondJacks Casino from Bossier City to Slidell.

    Legally P2E needs to reopen DiamondJacks by Feb. 9 – or forfeit its license – since St. Tammany Parish voters did not approve a referendum in November to allow gambling in the form of a casino in Slidell.
