Penn National Gaming Files For Ohio VLT Licenses And Consent To Relocate Its Racetracks To The Mahoning Valley And Dayton

Stocks in this article: PENN

The new Austintown facility – which will be a thoroughbred track – will be located on 184 acres in Austintown’s Centrepointe Business Park near the intersection of Interstate 80 and Ohio Route 46. It will be known as Hollywood Slots at Mahoning Valley Race Course.

The Dayton facility – a standardbred track – will be located on 125 acres on the site of an abandoned Delphi Automotive plant near Wagner Ford and Needmore roads in North Dayton. It will be called Hollywood Slots at Dayton Raceway.

Full details and design of both projects are in the development stage.

If approved, the Mahoning Valley and Dayton racinos will be the third and fourth new Penn National facilities to open in Ohio. The company opened the $320 million Hollywood Casino Toledo on May 29, and construction is near completion on the $400 million Hollywood Casino Columbus, which is expected to open in the fall of this year.
