Aqueduct Entertainment Group was scratched yesterday.
Gov. Paterson's office withdrew its
support from AEG's plan to operate 4,500 video slot terminals at
Aqueduct Racetrack following accusations of a rigged selection and
relaunched the bidding process.
"The Division of the Lottery
has concluded that it cannot issue a gaming license to [AEG],"
Paterson's office said in a statement.
The statement said the office wants a new bidding process that is "transparent" and "apolitical."
