Description

This was a two part investigation into illegal gambling at about a dozen eating and drinking establishments in Northeast Kansas City. KSHB-TV learned that at these bars and restaurants are operating casino-type gambling operations through the use of Las Vegas-style video slot machines. Customers are paid off according to how many credits they earn by winning poker hands dealt by the machines or by combinations of objects that appear on the screen. This gaming activity is illegal because it is unauthorized, unregulated and untaxed according to laws and rules set forth by the Missouri Gaming Commission. (Nov. 2 & 3, 1995)
