Isle Plans Expansion in Florida Market
As reported by the QC Times: "Isle of Capri Casinos will expand its gaming offerings in southeast Florida with a $140 million slots parlor at Pompano Park Harness Track. "The project will add 1,500 slot machines to the Pompano Park Harness Track, the only track in the Isle of Capri Casinos' family. The creation of a Racino - combination racetrack/casino - also includes four restaurants on the 331-acre property, which already houses a poker room. Isle of Capri acquired the track in 1995.
"...At the heart of the Racino will be a multi-story bar offering high-action imagery and audio on multiple video displays. The project, which is expected to be completed in the next seven to nine months, also will include new racetrack amenities such as a high-tech Winner's Circle..."
