Aqueduct Racino deal is officially dead in New York


New York state has officially pulled the plug on a controversial group chosen to run a planned racino at Aqueduct Racetrack. We're pretty sure you could just pull the plug on any casino project if you call it a racino. Racino? We get it but do we have to? Just call it a casino at a former race track or a race track with a casino please.

"The Division of the Lottery has concluded that it cannot issue a gaming license to Aqueduct Entertainment Group," Gov. Paterson's administration said in a statement.

"Therefore, the state has officially withdrawn its support for AEG to develop and operate a video lottery" slots parlor at the racetrack.
