Lottery Commission Votes For Monitor-Style Games
The Arkansas Lottery Commission has voted to introduce monitor-style games in the state. The panel voted Wednesday, but also expressed concern that some legislators have indicated they're opposed to the games in which players use interactive video monitors to pick numbers and see quickly whether they have won.
The commission wants to reverse a slide in revenues and the monitor games, which could include keno and bingo, may be a way to boost the revenue which provides money for college scholarships.
The games will not be video-lottery terminals, which are similar to slot machines and are banned by law.
