The state Division of Pari-mutuel Wagering denied an application by Gretna Racing for a license to have slot machines, ruling slots were allowed in Dade and Broward counties. Gretna appealed, arguing a 2009 statutory change opened the door to slots in other counties with local voter approval. The First District Court of Appeal agreed with the state and asked this Court to review the case as a question of great public importance.
