Scioto Downs Owner To Merge With Another Company

The firm that owns the Scioto Downs Racino on Columbus' South side will merge with a company that operates resorts in Nevada and Louisiana next year.

West Virginia-based MTR Gaming will combine with Nevada-based Eldorado Resorts in a stock merger, pending approval by shareholders and regulators. Company executives say the merger creates new opportunities for growth, and investors should expect to see new acquisitions in the coming years.
