William Rickman, owner of Ocean Downs, applied for an operator's license

Maryland slots slated for December

(US).- Slot machines could make their debut at Ocean Downs as early as December of this year, according to track officials. That is, of course, if all goes to plan.


illiam Rickman, owner of Ocean Downs, presented renderings and a strategy for the phasing in of machines at the proposed us$ 45 million slots project to state and local officials Wednesday as part of his application for an operator's license.

The state Video Lottery Facility Location Commission members - who are touring the four potential slots sites as part of their decision-making process - could award the licenses as early as September.

Within 90-120 days of being awarded a license for the Eastern Shore gambling location, Rickman would have the first 200 of his proposed 600-800 machines installed in the existing restaurant at Ocean Downs while construction begins on the permanent facility, where they will eventually be housed.
