Racino to open sooner than expected

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The new racino in Austintown will be open sooner than first expected.

The announcement was made during Penn National Gaming’s second-quarter investor conference call last week. Penn National is the racino’s parent company.

The minutes of the meeting indicate September is set for the opening of the racino, not November as originally announced.

The actual grand opening date has not been released just yet.

Construction on the new facility began in May of last year, and the work continues around the clock.
