West Virginia regulators on Tuesday approved addition of 595 slot machines for Mountaineer Race Track.

Once installed, the addition will bring the total to 2500 slots, which represents a 31% increase.

Regulators also voted to expand the hours for video lottery on Sundays, permitting the state’s racetracks to open for gaming at 10 a.m. instead of 1 p.m.
