Delaware gambling advisory council meets

Delaware's finance director is meeting with representatives of the state's gambling industry to discuss recent proposals to revise the state's gambling regulations.

Finance director Tom Cook was to meet with casino representatives Tuesday at a meeting of Delaware's Video Lottery Advisory Council at Dover Downs hotel and casino.

Markell administration officials last month proposed authorizing online gambling and allowing more onsite venues for gambling while giving financial breaks to Delaware's three existing casinos.

Officials say the money generated from the expanded gambling would allow them to eliminate the $4 million in slot machine fees paid by the existing casinos and cut their table game fees from $6.75 million to $3 million.
