Gambling mission creep continues

Posted By on Wed, Mar 29, 2017 at 3:27 PM

The House today completed action on SB 551 which will help Dave and Buster's open a restaurant/game arcade in Northwest Arkansas such as it opened in Little Rock.

It's something of a gambling bill. It legalizes award of merchandise prizes worth up to $500 for play on "amusement devices."

Add this to the bill to prohibit enforcement of gambling laws by ABC agents.
