IRB meeting agenda for next week features applications for ADW licenses for Lien Games (BetAmerica) plus one I didn't recognize right off the bat but seems to be affiliated with nyrabets, NEWCO VENTURES NORTH AMERICA, LLC

See:

https://www.oregon.gov/Racing/docs/Hub_Data/2016/HUB%20Website%20Addresses%20revised%206.28.16.pdf

What Illinois track or tracks are these two new ADWs aligned with?

Also AP seeking new OTB in Green Oaks, IL, right by Lamb's Farm. Does this mean Waukegan is soon to be kaput?

See, I have good sources:

I heard a rumor on Saturday that another OTB might open near Libertyville. Yes, a friend told me that a friend told him a bowling alley in that area might be converted to a sports bar to include an OTB. Like I said, it's a rumor.

I don't think they'd close Waukegan with it being so close to the state line and with Dairyland closed. The newly proposed OTB sounds like it will be multi-purpose with a sports bar, etc. My guess is it could have a couple of slots too. I have no idea how much space would be dedicated to this new OTB but it sounds like it might not be that big. I have no idea if this place is still open for bowling, how big the place is and if my source was accurate about the building. What my friend did tell me is with Maywood and Balmoral closing, Arlington had the option to open 4 new OTB's.

Nothing like some good LLC and LLP racing.  I don't like to bet corporations adding bar shoes, though. 

Unincorporated associations off a layoff are always good, though.

Your source must read the daily herald:

Thanks for providing that. I hadn't heard how the information was obtained.
