Gaming Machines Allowed for Fraternal & Veterans Groups that Get Licenses

Jan 30, 2013 -- 10:33pm

Legislation that will allow fraternal and veterans groups to operate gaming machines is now law.   Officials in the Governor’s office tell WGMD that Governor Markell signed House Bill 1 on Wednesday.  This measure will allow fraternal and veterans organizations who get a license from the state Lottery Office to operate gaming machines until June 30th.  They do have a number of conditions and restrictions to follow.  The licenses must be obtained first – and they will be available from the Lottery office in a few days.  Right now – the machines are still illegal!
