Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway has started work on a $3.1 million expansion that will increase the size of its smoking area and will add a few dozen video lottery terminals.
Preliminary construction work began this month to add about 4,700 square feet of space in the northeast corner of the racino facility at 777 Hollywood Blvd.
The inside of the facility is smoke-free, but the outdoor smoking patio will be expanded, said Bob Tenebaum, an Ohio spokesperson for Penn National Gaming, which operates Dayton’s raceway.
Hollywood Gaming will be adding about 42 video lottery terminals in the space, increasing the total number of terminals in the facility to 1,054, Tenebaum said.
The new space is expected to open in the fourth quarter of this year.
