Coin slots now running at Charles Town

December 04, 1999

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The coins finally began to jingle Saturday afternoon at the Charles Town Races after an electrical problem last week temporarily delayed implementation of the new coin-operated slot machines.

The first set of 65 of the new slot machines went operational at noon Saturday, three days later than planned.

All of the electrical problems that cropped up on Dec. 1 have been resolved, according to Bill Bork Jr., marketing director at the racetrack.

A grand opening ceremony is planned when the racetrack's temporary slot facility with 500 more machines is opened, Bork said.

The Silver Screen Gaming Complex is open from 1 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. Sundays, 9 a.m. to 3:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday.
