Virginia skill game ban now in effect
Virginia’s skill games ban is officially in effect, close to two years after it was put in place. The video game gambling machines, commonly found in convenience stores, have to be shut off after a Virginia Supreme Court ruling last month. That decision lifted a pause put in place by lower courts, while a lawsuit against the ban moved through the court system . The state’s supreme court ruling gave officials the ability to start immediately enforcing the skill games ban, however, some have elected to give businesses more time leaving it up to localities do decide how to proceed.
