Indiana gaming officials have their eyes keenly trained south of the Ohio River, on what could be the newest competition for Hoosier casinos. If lawmakers and voters in Kentucky move forward with casino gambling, part of that states niche will certainly be casinos, or at least slot machines, at some of the states horse tracks. That means Ellis Park could soon be competing with Casino Aztar. And Owensboro wants in on the action, too. That competition may not be arriving as soon as some think, according to long time Owensboro gaming supporter John Bays. After years of campaigning, he sold his hotel and moved on. But the multimillionaire still thinks gambling in the state could be a big money maker. Bays is pursing a possible casino project in West Virginia, another Kentucky border state, where they will be watching to see if competition does indeed pop up in Kentucky.
