The Missouri Senate voted to let you use slot machines in any business establishment ... as long as you're not gambling.
Beth Bentley has more from the state capitol.
Missouri law makers voted let any individual purchase a slot machine .... but winners cannot be credited with alcohol, tobacco, or more than 25 dollars.
In other words, it would allow the use of video slot machines found in bars or clubs.
But... Senator Harold Caskey said that the system could be abused.
He said that this small allowance would create a snow-ball effect.
The bill faces one last vote before it heads to the House.
From the state capitol, I'm Beth Bentley.
