Fairmount Racetrack might be in trouble, find out what they propose.
In Collinsville, IL there is a racetrack that was once extremely popular and though they get a great many visitors to this day – they are unsure of whether or not they are going to have the money to survive any longer. This is because they are not getting customers, clients and business like they used too. Many of the younger generation seem to have fallen into new technology and traps when it comes to placing their money on things – which means that those real races that happen – are not so exciting anymore.
Fairmount Park has been around for quite some time and the leaders of the track are not ready to let it go just yet. They feel that they can turn the track around, but they are going to need some help. They want to bring in new technology for this cause, and that means getting the approval from the state and law officials that have to oversee and approve it.
Slot machines are what they are asking for and they want to make sure that they can appeal to the younger generation, as well as the die hard fans that come through each and every weekend to see and bet on the races that they do. They are hoping to the get theyounger generation involved, as well. This new trend is known as racinos. A race track and casino that are put together and then it can appeal to different crowds.
The race track leaders are saying that the new area doesn’t have to be completely casino. They can skip some of the table games, but they want to at least have slots that people can play while they are there. They are able to wager on the races, so why couldn’t they play some of the less harmless slots while they are there?
The leaders of the track are now just patiently waiting to see what the result is and where to go from here. They do not want their race track to burn out and simmer down, but when they are not getting the right approvals – they can only wait.
Will they have the million dollar jackpot machines or the Jurassic Park themed machines, find out!
