Delaware Gambling Council Meets

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Representatives of state's gambling industry say times remain tough as Delaware's casinos cope with competition in neighboring states.
    
Representatives of Delaware's three casinos gathered with state lottery officials and industry suppliers on Tuesday at a meeting of the state Video Lottery Advisory Council.
    
Dover Downs CEO Ed Sutor said his company has seen a sharp drop in table game business and that Delaware casinos will be paying higher fees to suppliers of slot machines under new contracts that are still being negotiated.
    
Sutor said he hopes a new commission that will study threats to Delaware's gambling industry will come up with recommendations for long-term relief for the casinos.
    
Lawmakers agreed with Gov. Jack Markell to spend $8 million to help the casinos cover anticipated increases in slot machine vendor fees.
