Tonight at 10: Taking a gamble

Posted:

Thousands of Wisconsin bars and restaurants are taking a gamble on electronic gaming machines.

Chances are you've seen people paying to play the machines, but they're often illegal.

There's little police can do to stop them, due to complex state regulations.

The state even collects taxes on the machines.

Business owners say they're essential to their economic survival.

On Newsline 9 at 10 p.m. tonight, Melissa Langbehn talks with stakeholders in this game of chance.
