Maryland Gambling News Brief

'Most bingo, pull-tab machines illegal'

Baltimore Sun,  Tuesday, March 11, 2008 at 5:42:23 PM

Many of the electronic gambling machines that have proliferated across the state in recent months are illegal, according to an opinion released by Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler's office yesterday.

Some, however, would still be allowed under a 2001 ruling from the state's highest court, Assistant Attorney General Kathryn M. Rowe wrote in a letter to Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller. And while a bill moving quickly through that chamber would outlaw many of the rest of the machines, it would still exempt thousands that critics allege make illegal payouts in Baltimore County and Baltimore City.

The opinion overrules in some respects decisions made at the local level by state's attorneys who had decided to allow "instant bingo" and "pull-tab" machines within the past year after an aggressive lobbying campaign directed at them from companies that distribute the devices, which can look and act like slot machines. the source
