Gentlemen, start your economic engines.
As sports betting gets off to a red-hot start in Virginia, with February projections estimating that north of $100 million was wagered in the state, Richmond Raceway will be the latest group to jump in.
The track is partnering with WynnBET, the mobile app run by the group behind the Wynn casino in Las Vegas.
As part of the agreement, a “WynnBET lounge” will be constructed at the race track, to be used on race weekends.
