Trying to Ban Slots from County 

Council members in Prince George County are concerned about the idea of slot machines coming to Rosecroft Raceway. Eric Olson, the sponsor of the bill that would keep the slots out of the county, is supported by other council members as well as many residents. The problem they say is that the raceway cannot survive on its own and therefore should be allowed to simply shut down. But those in support of the slot machines say that if the games are not brought in then they will be looking at the loss of many jobs which will only make the financial situation in the county worse.  

However, a bill has been introduced that would ban all of the slot machines across the county which would drastically hurt the financial stability of Penn National Gaming who took over the track and recently reopened it. They are hoping to offer slot machines and table games, including poker, if they are given permission to do so. The track had gone bankrupt and closed their doors in 2010 but with the slots would be able to open their doors and run a profitable business.  

But many local leaders were opposed to the slot machines coming in when they first tried to get them back in 2008 and there has not been much movement on that front. There are still many that are not looking to prop up a horse track by adding in more gambling. The bill will be looked at over the next five weeks and is expected to hold true to the idea that slots cannot come into the track.
