Kinston Council Looks At Internet Gambling Cafes

Internet gambling cafes are popping up everywhere, and while they are legal, some cities are looking at clamping down on them.

The Kinston City Council meeting Tuesday night includes a public hearing about putting a moratorium on such internet cafes or internet sweepstakes operations.

The businesses sell phone or internet time to people to allow them to play sweepstakes games on computers to win prizes, cash or more playing time. There are some pending court cases in the state court of appeals that could decide these cafes are illegal.

We'll keep you posted on what Kinston decides.
