The maximum bet limit for video lottery remains unchanged after the South Dakota House of Representatives defeated House Bill 1246. The bill attempted to raise the video lottery bet limit from the current two dollars to five dollars.

Republican State Representative Dick Werner of Huron sponsored House Bill 1246. He says video lottery has not been changed in the state since its creation, so an improvement is necessary…

 

Werner’s goal to increase the maximum limit of awards from $1000 to $2500 dollars failed. Most of the opposition to the bill came from lawmakers who say video lottery destroys the lives of South Dakotans. Republican State Representative Scott Ecklund of Brandon spoke against the bill‚Ķ

 

This bill was defeated by a vote of 40 to 28.
