BANGOR, Maine — A new simulcast racing room is being unveiled at the Hollywood Slots casino in Bangor.

Hollywood Slots officials say the new simulcast operations will be similar to the simulcast facilities at Hollywood Slots’ harness racing track across the street. It will be unveiled Monday and be open for business on Tuesday.

The simulcast room allows customers to watch and bet on horse races at a number of horse tracks around the country, including Bangor Raceway. The simulcast facility at Bangor Raceway will remain open on days when there is live racing.
