CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The state Lottery Commission voted Monday to allow Charles Town Races to install an additional 600 video lottery machines, which will boost the track's total to 1,000 machines by mid-October, officials said.
The lottery commission approved the additional machines during a meeting at the track, said Bill Bork Jr., marketing director for Charles Town Races.
The track already has been given permission to operate 400 video lottery machines. Bork said 300 machines are running and 100 more are expected to be ready by the end of this week.
