WYOMING – According to a recent story in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle, operators of so-called “games of skill” have filed suit against the state of Wyoming challenging the state Attorney General’s position that the video games are illegal.
Vendors, organized as Wyoming Skills LLC, argue the games include an element of skill that exempts the games from state gambling laws. Players have 15 seconds to adjust reels after a spin in order to lineup a winning combination.
In his December 11 opinion, Attorney General Peter Michael pointed out that some spins are predetermined losers, and operators keep a percentage of the wagers—both cause to rule the video machines constitute illegal gambling.
