Ask any gambler in America what the word Racino means, and no doubt they could tell you without any difficulty. But in Europe, the word is little known, up until now that is, for things may be about to change. If you live in the UK, there may be a Racino about to pop up right near you!
According to wordspy.com the meaning of the word RACINO is:
‘A horse racing track that also includes slot machines, video gambling terminals, or other casino features.’
A flagship master plan for a Racino in Wolverhampton, UK had its planning application previously turned down after a Government Inspector said the venue was in greenbelt land.
But the plans, consisting of a casino, health club, and bigger hotel at Dunstall Park Racecourse are ready to go before Wolverhampton City Council any day now, according to David Roberts, managing director of Dunstall Park. As quoted by the Express and Star Newspaper, David Roberts apparently said: “Plans are pretty much ready to be submitted any day now.
We are hoping we have got everything in the right order and are just looking for the final sign-off from our chief executive.”
