DOVER, Del. (AP) - Representatives of Delaware's casino industry are gathering to discuss the state of Delaware's gambling industry.

The state Video Lottery Advisory Council was to meet Tuesday at Dover Downs.

The agenda includes a review of the competitive situation with Maryland and Pennsylvania, Delaware lottery initiatives, and manufacturers' new products.

State lawmakers recently approved a proposal by Gov. Jack Markell to extend an $8 million financial bailout for Delaware's three casinos to help cover anticipated increases in slot machine vendor costs.
