MTR Gaming is not waiting around for the outcome of the pending lawsuit in a Franklin County courthouse that challenges the constitutionality of VLTs. Working at a feverish pace, MTR hopes to open part of Scioto Downs Casino & Racetrack in June. Once open, Scioto Downs will employ 800 people, have 2,100 VLTs, a buffet, restaurant and bar. Horse racing begins May 10. Part of the casino, with some of the VLTs, would open in early June and the remainder of the casino, including the buffet and remaining VLTs would open in August. Of course, all could be for naught if the judge doesn’t rule favorably.
