House committee cuts portions of proposed gaming law

Indiana’s gaming industry suffered a setback Wednesday.  A House committee cut out portions of a proposed gaming law that would allow live table games at Racinos and let riverboat casinos move on land.

Opponents said live table games are unnecessary and could possibly hurt casinos on Indiana’s borders.

Those in support of the change feel bringing in dealers would create new jobs and make Indiana casinos more attractive.

Lawmakers said this bill could be debated in the final days of the session next month when the House and Senate try to hammer out differences on this and other bills.

    I wish they would have a live table. Nothing beats the excitement at a producing live craps table versus one of these nasty electronic juke boxes of a table.

    Though I will admit the last time I was at Indiana Live I hit for several hundred at one of their juke box crap tables.
