Games of skill

Roby Brock's Monday Morning Briefing reports on electronic games of skill at Oaklawn and Southland:

ELECTRONIC GAMES OF SKILL WAGERS RISE
The Arkansas Racing Commission reported figures for February's electronic games of skill (EGS) at Oaklawn Racing Park and Southland Greyhound Park.

In February 2008, Oaklawn EGS wagers totaled $18.2 million, up 9 percent from the previous month and a whopping 52 percent increase from February 2007.  Payouts topped $17 million for the month of February, the first full month of live horse racing at Oaklawn.

Southland's EGS wager totals pulled in more than $29.1 million for the month of February and paid out $27.2 million.  February wagers are up $5.8 million from the previous month, roughly 25 percent higher.  In a year-over-year comparison, Southland's February wagers have increased by 76.5 percent.  Track officials say that increased advertising and extended hours of operation contributed to the increase.
