New York lottery officials have selected four firms to supply video lottery terminals at racetracks for a new gambling program, but so far, track officials aren't leaping at it because they insist it will lose money.
Video lottery terminals, despite the objection of the New York Racing Association, have taken a key step closer to coming to a Saratoga Springs harness track.
Other tracks in New York have joined the New York Racing Association in condemning aspects of the state's new law that authorizes video lottery terminals. They claim state government is forcing them to pick up too many of the costs of the program.
