Casinos update state on status

The health of Delaware’s gambling industry will be discussed today at a meeting of state lottery officials today at Dover Downs.

 Casino leaders say their facilities have been struggling to turn a profit from slots and table games, due in part to the poor economy, competition from other states, and high licensing fees paid to the state.  The Video Lottery Advisory Council will discuss the possibility of revising revenue-sharing agreements with the state.  The council is expect to finalize its recommendations in a report next month.
