Lawmakers Could Consider Legalizing Video Poker Machines

The North Carolina Education Lottery says the state could one day generate $576 million annually if lawmakers legalize video poker machines again and regulate them heavily.

The lottery released its analysis yesterday.

The Town of Snow Hill in Greene county has joined other cities in the east to restrict and tax Internet sweepstakes businesses, that's according to the Kinston Free Press.

This new stance comes as the state legislature considers looking into legalizing video poker machines again.

One state senator suggested lawmakers legalize video poker again and regulate it through the lottery, if games, like those at internet cafes, can not be completely banned.

Lottery Officials say they state could generate.$576 million annually.
