HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania –- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Top executives from all six
licensed Pennsylvania racinos will participate in a special presentation at
the 3rd annual Pennsylvania Gaming Congress & Racing Forum, March 12-13 at
the Whitaker Center and Harrisburg Hilton.

The racino executives will examine the early trends in slot operations,
update the progress on facilities still under construction, and analyze the
competitive landscape as Category 2 casinos prepare to open and competitors
in neighboring states expand their facilities in the increasingly
competitive Northeast.

Frank J. Fahrenkopf Jr., President and CEO of the American Gaming
Association, will moderate the panel, which includes:

-- Ted Arneault, CEO, MTR Gaming (Presque Isle Downs)

-- John Finamore, Senior Vice President, Regional Operations, Penn
National Gaming (Hollywood Casino)

-- Dave Jonas, President and COO, Philadelphia Park Casino

-- Bill Paulos, CEO, Millennium Gaming (The Meadows)

-- Robert Soper, President and CEO, Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs

"These executives are on the front line of this young industry in
Pennsylvania. They will provide valuable insight on the opening of their
facilities, expansion plans, and the outlook for the entire Pennsylvania
gaming industry," Fahrenkopf said.

Thomas A. Decker, Chairman of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board,
will deliver the Keynote Address on "The State of Gaming in Pennsylvania."
The conference program also features a workshop for vendors seeking to do
business with the casinos, a panel of four of Wall Street's premier
analysts, an analysis of slot machine performance, and a special
presentation on casinos and land-use fights.

This year's Pennsylvania Gaming Congress includes a Racing Forum, which
will examine the latest trends and technologies that are reshaping the
business and practices of racetracks in the Northeast and nationwide, as
well as a discussion of how gaming can help racetrack operators market to
their horse players.
