Portland Meadows asks for Instant Racing machines

May 6, 2013 7:03 PM

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.
