No way it will have poker until it adds an rivers and even then maybe not. I wish they would put slots and poker in at arlington park. That would be the nuts!
Horse racing isnt doing well much these casino but if they were able to add these two forms caeino gambling it would do real well. Would love to room able to take the train to arlington park and play poker and gamble on the ponies.
