More Ohio Gambling? Slot Machines a Possibility
Penn National Gaming, the developers behind the Columbus Casino have gotten the approval for their purchases of the Beulah Park horse racing track in Grove City, according to reports by both The Dispatch (“With slots a possibility, horse tracks snapped up“) and Business First (“Regulators OK Beulah Park sale to Penn National“). Last year, Governor Strickland pushed for legislation to allow for the installation of slot machines at seven race tracks throughout Ohio including both Beulah Park and Scioto Downs.
The fate of the slot machine legislation may come down to a statewide vote this November. Do you support the addition of non-casino slot machine gaming in Ohio?
