DOVER — For the second year in a row, relief has not been in the cards for Delaware’s three casinos.
Although this legislative session does not end until Thursday, there will be no measures from the General Assembly to provide financial assistance to the casinos.
“We’re disappointed. Our problems are not going away,” said Dover Downs Hotel & Casino President and CEO Ed Sutor. “It’s only going to get tougher when MGM opens their facility (in National Harbor, Maryland) later this year.
“We have no choice but to continue to hold down expenses as much as we can and hopefully the new administration and the new legislature will take on our situation earlier rather than at the end of the session like they’ve done for the past several years.”
