Erie Slot Machines Earned Around $9 Million On Their Opening Day

On February 28, 2007, the long awaited opening of the Presque Isle Downs slots casino finally arrived after a series of delays.

The reasons for the delays include the fact that the Pennsylvania Gaming Board could not decide if there was a vacancy on the gaming board for the slots issue, as well as some legal problems that needed to be resolved before the slots casino was permitted to open for business.

The slots casino was able to earn around $9 million on its opening day. It is also expected to attract gamblers from Northeast Ohio. According to officials, the Erie slots also paid out around $8.1 million on their opening day last Wednesday. In total, the Erie slots have cleared out a total of $800,000.

Among the 4 slots parlors located in Philadelphia, only the one in Erie earned search a great amount on its very first day. Slot machines have been allowed in Erie, especially in the horse race tracks, in an effort to revive the residents' dwindling interest in the horse racing industry.
