OLG SLOTS AT MOHAWK RACETRACK CELEBRATES TENTH ANNIVERSARY
November 12, 2009
“Since the opening of Slots at Mohawk Racetrack ten years ago, OLG has enjoyed a strong community partnership with the Town of Milton and its residents,” said Senior Vice President Gaming Larry Flynn. “We’re proud that through this partnership, the Town of Milton and region has been able to support important local programs and initiatives, and we look forward to many more successful years serving this community.”
The slot facility has created approximately 237 direct jobs with annual wages and benefits of $12.1 million, which is reinvested into the community through the purchase of personal goods and services by employees.
As the host community for OLG Slots at Mohawk Racetrack, the Town of Milton has received more than $59.8 million in non-tax gaming revenue since the facility opened. Mayor Gordon Krantz states, “OLG Corporate and the Slots at Mohawk have been great partners with the Town of Milton over the last 10 years. We enjoy an excellent working relationship with them and are proud of the many contributions they have made to the Milton community over this period.”
OLG has also been a proud community sponsor of the Milton Downtown Street Festival, the Milton District Hospital Foundation 2009 Golden Gala, and the Milton Chamber of Commerce Mayor’s Breakfast 2009.
OLG Slots at Mohawk Racetrack is operated and managed by OLG. The facility offers approximately 863 slot machines and has attracted more than 13.5 million visitors since opening.
