South Carolina looking to ban gaming machines

Posted: Updated:

South Carolina legislators are trying one more time to ban sweepstakes-style video gaming machines.

This will be the second time South Carolina lawmakers try to put an end to it. According to our WTOC Bureau at the Island Packet, the Senate passed a bill last week closing a "loophole" that prevents operators from placing the gaming machines in stores and bars.

South Carolina lawmakers say there is no loophole but want better clarification of regulations written into the law. The bill is now being considered in the House of Representatives.
