CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Operators of the local thoroughbred racetrack say they want their video lottery machines to pay out winnings in coins rather than the current paper validation slips.
Players want coin payouts so they can move freely from machine to machine, said Bill Bork Jr., director of marketing at PNGI Charles Town Races.
Currently, players who win money on video lottery machines receive a slip of paper from the machines that reveal their winnings.
Players then have to take the slips to a validation window to be cashed.
"They like the look and feel of real slot machines. Eventually we would like to get real slot machines in West Virginia," said Bork.
