Casino News: Sweepstakes parlor vs. enforcement officials

Sweepstakes parlor vs. enforcement officials

 December 24, 2009, 9:58 am (8 years ago)
The lottery or sweepstakes parlors in North Carolina have avoided the legal attack after a finding by an appeals court which conserved a wide prohibition on physical video poker machines, but concluded that phone card lotteries don’t comprise illegitimate demeanor for now.

Sweepstakes parlors sell phone cards to clients which allow them to have Internet time on virtual video poker slot machines, producing an authorized loophole which has been the trigger of continual disputes between enforcement officials and sweepstakes parlor operators in the United States.

According to the report this week by the media in Raleigh, North Carolina, the court finding advocates operator statements that their business is not gambling since clients are paying for computer time or a phone card. Operators claim that the hands of video poker or outcomes from virtual slot machines on computers are promotional tools utilized to entice clients to purchase merchandise and get an opportunity to win a reward.
