State of Texas Considering Electronic Gaming

Bingo Halls in the US are primarily charity ran organizations or churches and over the years there has been a decline in the number of players.

The Texas Lottery Commission is deliberating this week on allowing Slot-like machines in Bingo Halls. Those in support feel it could raise the traffic and generate more money for charitable causes.

But Rob Kohler of the Christian Life Commission of the Baptist General Convention of Texas thinks otherwise:

“This changes the gaming landscape in the state” and allows gaming like “we’ve never seen before”.
The commission will go over the proposal that would allow players video confirmation for pull tab winners.

“Video confirmation is the graphic and dynamic representation of the outcome of a pull-tab ticket, but video confirmation has no role in determining the ticket’s outcome,” commission spokeswoman Kelly Cripe said in a statement.

Cripe also commented on the proposed rules that would prevent the video machines from simulating “rolling or spinning wheels, dice or the play of casino-style games.”
