North Carolina Senate considers expanding gambling
Lawmakers in North Carolina are discussing expanding gambling in the state to include video lottery terminals and full casinos outside of Native American tribal land
The North Carolina Senate is considering expanding gambling in the state, following the recent approval of legislation to legalize sports betting.
Lawmakers are debating allowing video lottery terminals statewide and full casinos outside of Native American tribal land, which could potentially generate $1.6 billion in gross gaming revenue.
The bipartisan House bill has collected more than 55 sponsors and is currently awaiting Senate action.
The expansion would also include sports betting and could potentially eliminate the need for North Carolinians to cross state lines to gamble.
The timeline for the plan's approval remains uncertain.
