The Maine Gambling Control Board said customers wagered more than $1.1 billion on slot machines last year at the state’s two casinos. In its first full year, customers at the Oxford Casino gambled $677 million on slot machines, taking away $619 million in wins and leaving close to $30 million for the house, after taxes. Bangor’s Hollywood Casino saw customers gamble $469 million at its slot machines, $100 million less than the year before. The Bangor Casino paid out $422 million. The Legislature is considering whether to approve up to three more casinos and one slot facility. (AP)
