Pennsylvania's gaming board today announced a staggered schedule for testing and unveiling table gambling at state casinos, allowing some table gaming to fully open beginning July 8.

The Gaming Control Board said the procedure will begin with an eight-hour test period, with board personnel determining whether each casino is ready. If the conditions are met, each casino will go live with table games two days later, allowing one "down day" for any issues to be addressed.

Three teams of Gaming Control Board personnel will be available.

The test date schedule is:

Tuesday, July 6

Meadows Racetrack and Casino (Washington)

Sunday, July 11
