Bills to legalize video gambling, expand slots at tracks introduced | The Star Press - www.thestarpress.com - Muncie, IN

Bills to legalize video gambling, expand slots at tracks introduced The Star Press - www.thestarpress.com - Muncie, IN:
"Indiana's riverboat casinos also are making sizable investments, adding hotel rooms and renovating casinos.
State horse-racing interests also will be back at the Legislature wanting slot machines and pull tabs, although Gov. Mitch Daniels indicated Thursday that he would not support any expansion of gambling.
Brad Klopfenstein, executive director of the Indiana Licensed Beverage Association, said legalizing video gaming would not constitute an expansion of gambling, given that many Hoosier bars, clubs and even retailers already have them.
'They largely go unchecked,' said Klopfenstein, although state excise has been cracking down, recently arresting Yorktown man John Neal on video gambling-related charges."
