Veterans Rally For Video Lottery Machines

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - Today veterans rallied together in an effort to save their Video Lottery Machines. Back in November, veteran organizations reportedly received letters from the Department of Homeland Security telling them the machines were no longer legal.

Representatives informed us revenue from these machines account for about 80% of their income; which is why the hundreds who turned out at Legislative hall in Dover are appealing to the governor. "That was a big source of our income and that's one of the ways we help the community, help the veterans, help the people that are in need. And that's what we're all about, helping people," says Tom Jones, AMVETS Department of Delaware Judge Advocate.

We're told the Video Lottery Machines have been around for 18 years and the vets at the rally hope to get them back up and running soon.
