Daily Record: More scrutiny, then more slots for Perryville

From the Daily Record —-

ANNAPOLIS – The purchase of $16 million worth of slot machines for a casino in Cecil County met with more scrutiny from the Board of Public Works on Wednesday as gaming officials sparred with the comptroller over the acquisition of gaming terminals.

The board approved the deal 2-1, rounding out the allotment of 1,500 slot machines destined for Hollywood Casino Perryville. The state will purchase 438 machines from Spielo Manufacturing at an average cost of $23,662, with an additional $12,575 for five years of maintenance.

Comptroller Peter Franchot resumed his critique of the state’s handling of its nascent gaming industry. Two weeks ago, he slammed the Maryland Lottery Agency for paying $46,000 each for the first batch of 1,062 machines destined for Perryville.
