State Commission Gives Help to Historic Horse Racing
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Fans of historic horse racing in Wyoming could see the games start to come back in operation as soon as November 20.
The Wyoming Pari-Mutuel Commission on Friday approved two new games for historic horse racing terminals.
The terminals have been shut down since early October because of concern that they were too similar to slot machines.
The decision was among several the commission made during its meeting in Casper to help the state’s pari-mutuel horse racing industry, which has been losing money every day that the terminals are down.
The machines, also known as instant horse racing, allow bettors to place wagers on horse races that have already been run.
Operators of the terminals say the new games approved Friday will comply with state law.
