Joined by Assemblyman Tom McKevitt, OTB officials presented Mike Amatrura, owner of Potter's Pub, with a bonus check in the amount of $2,500. The total amount OTB’s patrons wagered increased an astounding 9 percent for 2011 despite the challenging economic climate.
“Nassau OTB has given in excess of $390 million to Nassau County since its inception,” said Joseph Cairo, President of Nassau OTB. “Since Nassau OTB is now servicing more patrons at a higher rate than it ever has, all of this allows for a greater amount of money to be generated for Nassau County so that it can continue to flourish and govern to the best of its ability.”
Potters Pub is one of several FastTrack locations awarded bonus checks this year because of the outstanding increase it have seen. FastTrack is an automated betting system that lets fans enjoy the sport of horse racing without leaving the comfort of their local pub.
