DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware casino operators say the negative economic impact from competition in other states seems to be leveling off, but they still face significant financial challenges.

Operators of each of Delaware’s three casinos presented revenue and employment numbers Wednesday to a state panel charged with helping find a path forward for Delaware’s gambling industry.

But operators of Delaware Park acknowledged they don’t see future growth in Delaware’s casino industry.

Dover Downs officials say if the current revenue sharing structure can be revised, with the state taking a smaller cut, the casinos may be able to stay in business.

Members of the panel, which recommended a $10 million casino bailout approved by lawmakers earlier this year, meet twice more before a January 15 deadline to submit further recommendations.
