Games of skill

Posted on Mon, Apr 7, 2008 at 7:45 AM

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

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.
