ALABAMA SUPREME COURT FINDS GAMING MACHINES UNCONSTITUTIONAL

MONTGOMERY, AL , Video gaming machines that rely mainly on chance violate the constitution's lottery provisions, said the Alabama Supreme Court in a 7-1 decision on May 31. Operators had held that a 1996 redemption law permitted eight liners and other casino-type video machines as long as there were no cash payouts and "some" skill was required. The ruling upheld a 2002 finding that local district attorneys have used to close adult redemption arcades statewide. The Associated Press said up to 2,000 of these locations were running at one time.
