Study finds Petersburg, Richmond could support casinos, separately or together

A study found that a Richmond casino would generate about $300 million and 2,000 jobs. It would also reduce the number of new jobs by about 300. The General Assembly voted in 2020 to legalize casino gambling in five cities, including Richmond.

A Petersburg casino also reduces revenue from historical horse racing operations by $46 million. Virginia's state gaming tax revenues would rise from $103.5 million to $115.8 million with a Casino in Petersburg and to to more than $130 million if an additional casino opened in Richmond, but those totals include reduced revenues at the other four.

Oregon DOJ opinion finds that The Flying Lark's gaming machines would constitute an illegal casino

Oregon Attorney General's office finds that The Flying Lark's proposed gaming machines would constitute an illegal casino. The opinion was issued at the request of Jack McGrail, executive director of the Oregon Racing Commission. Tribal criticism has been that the FlyingLark will essentially turn it into a casino under the constitution. The HHRs are games of chance that do not afford players any meaningful opportunity to exercise skill. Lotteries are constitutionally prohibited in Oregon unless they are run by the State Lottery. Supporters of The Larks say that losing the Hhrs would hurt the local economy.
