Article on Scientific Games Corporation, which is the state-appointed monitor of slot-machine receipts at Hollywood Slots, but is also the recipient of part of the casino's profits. Off-track-betting (OTB) parlors receive two percent of the racino's profits to compensate them for theoretical revenue losses. Autotote Enterprises, a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Games, receives a portion of the money as owners of an OTB in Waterville. This dual role has raised concerns about the state's ability to oversee gambling as it grows in Maine. With comments by Mike Peters, who recently quit the state's Gambling Control Board to protest how the state is letting the industry develop; Robert Welch, executive director of the Gambling Control Board; Lisa Marrache, of the Legal and veterans Affairs Committee; and Tom Hodgkins, a spokesman for Scientific Games, who denies any conflict of interest.
