Missouri House committee approves sports gambling, slot machines

Legislation that would legalize sports wagering and slot machines has been approved by a Missouri House committee.

The House Government Oversight Committee has also approved an amendment from state representative Dan Shaul of Imperial to allow sports wagering and slot machines in “entertainment districts.”

VLTs, known as video lottery terminals, are slot machines.
They would be connected to a centralized computer system developed by the Lottery Commission.
Shaul says 18 states will have implemented sports wagering by the end of 2020.
