KY Legislature bans skill games in state

The Kentucky Legislature passed a bill this week that would ban skill games or sometimes referred to as “gray machines” in the state.

“Gray machines” are usually found in some restaurants and gas station convenience stores. They resemble slot machines in design, but are generally considered a game of skill instead of a game of chance.

The bill passed through the Kentucky House by a vote of 64-32 and passed in the Senate by a vote of 29-6.

Russell County’s representative Josh Branscum voted in favor of the ban, while Sen. Rick Girdler, who represents Russell County, did not vote on the bill in the senate.
