$1.2M Raised to Promote Arkansas Casinos

LITTLE ROCK, AR (Ben Caxton) — An Arkansas group trying to put a proposal on the ballot to legalize casinos raised more than $1.2 million last month. Driving Arkansas Forward has over a half-million in cash on hand to campaign for its proposed constitutional amendment. Most of the donations came from the Downstream Development Authority of the Quapaw Tribe and Cherokee Nation Businesses. The group wants to legalize gambling at a Hot Springs horse track and Southland Gaming and Racing in West Memphis as well as casinos in two other counties. Southland currently offers video poker and slot machines where players can press a hold button between two spins.
