Business booming at Rosie’s, team dedicated to security

VINTON, Va. — Rosie’s Gaming Emporium in Vinton has been raking in the money.

The business’ June financial report shows Historic Horse Racing Machines brought in $22 million. Vinton is receiving $56,000 in taxes.

While business has been booming, Rosie’s does have to call the police every so often.

Records from Vinton Police Department show 34 calls for service have been made since the business opened in May 2019.

Most calls were for keys locked inside of cars. There were three calls for suspected drug possession and one call for a drunk person.

A spokesperson released the following statement:

We provide a safe and secure environment. 20% of our team members, roughly 40 people in Vinton, are dedicated to security and surveillance positions.  We don’t experience any higher level of incidents than other high traffic consumer locations. 

-Rosie’s Gaming Emporium Spokesman Mark Hubbard

Rosie’s Gaming Emporium officials traveled to Southside Virginia Thursday evening. They’re seeing if there is enough support to expand and bring a gaming emporium to the Danville area.
