AUSTINTOWN TWP.: Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course launched a $1.7 million expansion project Monday that will add 50 new slots-like video lottery terminals to the racino.

The project will increase the size of the gaming floor, bringing the total number of games on the property to 1,030 and include a high-limit area.

The racino said construction is expected to end in early June, and guests will not experience any interruptions on the gaming floor.

“This expansion to the gaming floor will not only add to the excitement of our property, but will also provide a comfortable area for our high-limit players,” general manager Mike Galle said in a prepared statement.

Some of the new VLT themes being added include Lock it Link, Zeus, Son of Kronos, Jackpot Inferno, Gold Bonanza, and Buffalo Gold.

Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley opened with 850 VLT machines in September 2014. It is one of seven combined horse tracks and VLT parlors in Ohio.
