First Look Inside Dayton Racino

DAYTON -- Larry Parr owns the Paradise Key Cafe right across the street from the Dayton Racino.

"It's going to bring about 1,000 jobs and of course the construction workers are already over there working so they're buying fuel in there, getting the tires here, and they're buying food from us, so it's already having a larger economic impact on the area," said Parr.

But competition will be fierce with The New Miami Valley Gaming Racino opening up this December just 30 miles away, but Parr says he isn't concerned.

"It should be enough business for everybody I think," he said.

And Miami Valley Gaming president also says he's not concerned.

"We believe we have a top notch facility in terms of amenities and restaurants," said  Jim Simms, President and General Manager of Miami Valley Gaming. "We believe there's enough in the market place for everyone to compete effectively. "We know it's a very competitive market but we haven't scaled back in terms of the offerings that our competitors have so we're comfortable in bringing the right product at the right time.

Today we got our first look inside the $250 million Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway racino complex.  It is expected to include 1,500 video  slots machines and a 5/8ths of a mile track for the horses.

And while drivers have complained about increased traffic flow, the local businesses love it.

"We are so thrilled and so happy about the economic impact that this is going to bring to Dayton," said Parr.

The entire project is expected to cost $125 million to construct and another 125 million in state fees.

The steel beams will be in place for the structure within a couple weeks and Penn National Gaming, owners of the Dayton Racino, expect to have the shell of the building in place before winter and say they will start hiring after the first of the year. Click here to see how you can apply.
