The Catawba Indian Nation wants to bring what could become high-stakes bingo to Decker Boulevard.
Tribal leaders are looking into taking over an existing bingo hall in the struggling retail corridor in the Dentsville area.
Payouts of up to $100,000 are possible, but the games would start with much smaller prizes, Chief Donald Rodgers said Wednesday.
The site is the tribe's top choice after proposals were rejected in four other South Carolina communities, he said.
The plan has the support of Richland County Councilman Jim Manning of Forest Acres. But some leaders in nearby neighborhoods are undecided.
