The West Virginia Lottery Commission has approved the use of electronic touch screens at the state's racetrack casinos as an option for betting on live table games.
The system was requested by the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races but was approved for all four of the state's racetrack casinos. Lottery Director John Musgrave hopes innovations such as the Rapid Fusion system will help them compete with new gambling complexes in Maryland, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
The Lottery says table game revenues fell 36 percent for the first five months of the fiscal year.
