Ohio's latest entry into the gambling industry opened its doors for business Thursday morning. Miami Valley Gaming in Warren County features 1,600 video lottery terminals, several dining options and a harness racetrack that will open in February. President and general manager Jim Simms said the facility is expected to generate about $24 million per year for the community.
The company opening a racino in Turtlecreek Township says it's committing $3 million to revitalizing the Warren County Fairgrounds.
Miami Valley Gaming is contributing $1 million this year that will support redeveloping the current Lebanon Raceway at the fairgrounds. The raceway is being moved to the new gaming and racing complex that will be built.
