Charles Town Races looks to add 1,500 video slot machines



CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Charles Town Races wants to add 1,500 video machines to the 2,000 it has now.

A public hearing on the request is scheduled for Feb. 28 at 9 a.m. at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center in Shepherdstown, W.Va.

At 11 a.m., the West Virginia Lottery Commission is scheduled to meet at Charles Town Races to consider the request and vote on it. The commission's meeting is open to the public.
