Thursday, 13th May 2010

In the US, New York State "has issued a new call for bidders to operate a casino at Aqueduct, 9 years after the project was first approved by the legislature" reported bloodhorse.com. The new bidding "comes after the state earlier this year had selected Aqueduct Entertainment Group to run the casino & its 4,500 slot machines; but Governor David Paterson rescinded the deal & federal prosecutors & the state Inspector General's office have since begun investigations into the awards process". The new bidding round (the 4th under 3 separate executive administrations in New York since 2001) "envisions an operator for the Aqueduct casino being selected within 12 weeks".
