Portland Meadows asks for Instant Racing machinesMay 06, 2013 7:03 PM by Ray Poirier
Instant Racing has developed a new fan in the financially troubled Portland Meadows racetrack.
Officials of the track have asked lawmakers to approve the Instant Racing gambling devices as a means of generating more revenue. A bill authorizing the machines has been approved by the House and now goes to the Senate.
The gambling machines have been a big hit at racetracks in Kentucky and Arkansas.
