Bill to tighten NH charity gaming regulations gets OK from House
Supporters say House Bill 1630 would provide greater transparency and the assurance of integrity for those playing the games, the beneficiaries and the state.
Three authority members introduced HB 1633 to provide greater oversight over the industry, to control video gaming machines now regulated by local communities or “gray machines” and to establish a commission to take a greater in-depth look at the industry and the state’s regulatory role.
When the law was changed to allow facilities to host charity gaming events, the charities were to receive a guaranteed 35 percent of the net earnings, but the charities’ take eroded over time.
The bill now goes to the Senate for action.
