State lawmakers agree on bill bringing video slot machines to LI

Negotiators for Gov. Andrew Cuomo have reached an agreement with state lawmakers on a bill that would bring slot machines to Long Island.

The measure calls for video slot machines to be placed inside OTB parlors, but it is unclear how many would be installed throughout the Island. Either way, both Nassau and Suffolk counties could reap about $25 million from the games.

The bill also details four Las Vegas-style casinos to be built upstate in an effort to help that region's sagging economy.

A vote is expected on the bill this Friday, June 21.
