These Illegal Gaming Machines Are Untaxed, Unregulated, and Unsafe
and Bad for Kentucky’s Future
Illegal and unregulated gaming machines, commonly referred to as “gray machines” or “skill games,” are quickly proliferating in communities across Kentucky. These predatory machines are not located in established gaming facilities, not run by gaming professionals, and are not monitored by state regulators like legally authorized gaming venues. Instead, these illegal gaming machines are taking up shop in our corner convenience stores just down the street from our kids’ schools.
