Kentucky Governor Signs Bill Banning Slot-Like Skill Games
It is considered that the new legislation would prevent the largest gambling expansion in state history; opponents call for regulation and taxation.
The Governor of Kentucky has signed a bill into law that bans slot-like skill games across the state, following the passage of similar legislation in the previous year's session.
Supporters of the ban say it will prevent the biggest gambling expansion in Kentucky's history, but opponents claim the games are legal skill-based offerings and called for regulation and taxation of the devices.
The lead up to the bill's signing was marked by $600,000 in advertising spending by interest groups.
