Slots Will Soon Be Loose in Bangor

The first shipments of slot machines arrived in Bangor Friday. 475 machines are due to be installed at Hollywood Slots, housed in the former Miller's Restaurant building on Main Street.

Opponents already are collecting signatures for a 2006 ballot-initiative banning slot machines in Maine. Past efforts by No Slots for ME! to overturn the "racino" law ran into trouble.

Update (Oct. 4, 2005): No Slots for ME! failed to get enough signatures to force a referendum next year, but haven't yet given up.
