Delayed Ocean Downs Slots Parlor To Open Jan. 4
BERLIN, Md. (AP) — A slots parlor at the Ocean Downs horse track is scheduled to open Jan. 4 if a demonstration run at the end of this month is successful.
State and casino representatives are expected to attend the Dec. 29 demonstration run along with about 1,000 American Legion members. The event will serve as a charity function for the Worcester County American Legion, which will receive 33 percent of the revenue.
The slots parlor was originally scheduled to open by Memorial Day, but aging steel beams, asbestos and lead paint in the track’s grandstand were among the construction delays that held up the project.
