Video sweepstakes machines ban goes into effect

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The ban on video sweepstakes machines will go into effect across the state today.

This comes after the state Supreme Court denied a request from the sweepstakes game industry to delay an earlier decision that sweepstakes halls are gambling operations.

The industry wanted a few weeks to see if the US Supreme Court would consider its claim of free-speech protections.

It is unclear whether the sweepstakes parlors have opened across the state will be closed or whether their owners will find a way to comply with the law.
