Operators Pleased with First Weeks of Racino
TURTLECREEK TOWNSHIP, Ohio (Larry Davis) -- Ever since the Racino opened two and a half weeks ago there has been a steady stream of traffic.
The people at Miami Valley Gaming say they couldn't be more pleased with the turnout.
"It's been very smooth. Sometimes that's a little scary when you're waiting for something to go wrong. But it's been a great opening so far for us."
Jeff Nelson with Miami Valley Gaming says there have been very few glitches in the first two and a half weeks of the Racino. Attendance has averaged right around five thousand people during the week and just about ten thousand on the weekend.
The slot machines have not been idle.
There have been no traffic troubles going into or out of the complex. As with the arrival of the casinos in the tri-state, there is always a concern about whether law enforcement would see an increase in service runs.
Warren County Sheriff Larry Sims has seen no trouble.
"We're pretty pleased so far with how it's been going. It doesn't seem to be a huge demand on our resources as of yet. But we're kind of waiting to see."
The tri-state's second Racino will open in May. River Downs in Anderson Township is re-opening as Bel-Terra Park Gaming and Entertainment Center.
