Sweepstakes Games Fate Goes to Jury Trial After North Carolina Supreme Court Decision

Share

Raleigh, NC —  With the Pre-Reveal-Goldinjunction gone, it paves the way for a trial that will likely decide the gaming fate in North Carolina. Sheriff’s can begin enforcing a ban on sweepstakes games that mimic Las Vegas-style slots after the state Supreme Court decided two sweepstakes companies couldn’t block authorities. The sheriffs were blocked from enforcing ban until Thursday.

The NC supreme court on Thursday ruled against a lawsuit by developers of the new gaming format, they tried to block former Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown from enforcing the state’s gaming laws against sweepstakes operators. The Supreme Court cited a lower-court ruling by Justice Sam Ervin IV, who joined the high court last year. Ervin wrote last year that sweepstakes machines are games of chance and covered under North Carolina’s gambling prohibitions.

In addition to the anticipated bill regulating electronic sweepstakes promotions that was filed by Representative Harry Warren (R-Rowan), Representative Chris Malone (R-Wake) also filed a major piece of legislation today that will regulate and tax internet cafés. Malone’s bill clarifies the law regarding internet cafés by regulating and taxing these small businesses. The bill also ensures that all café owners are required to be approved for an operator’s license by the North Carolina Department of Commerce. A vendor’s license will also be required for all software vendors. “Small business owners in North Carolina deserve a high degree of certainty and consistency in their interactions with state government and local law enforcement,” said Representative Malone. “This bill creates a more positive business environment for entrepreneurs who choose whack-a-mole

to open and operate internet cafés in North Carolina. The positive economic impact and government revenues these businesses generate are assets to our state.” Former Senator Thom Goolsby, spokesman for the North Carolina Small Business Coalition, said, “The introduction of Representative Malone’s legislation signifies a new beginning in the relationship between state government and internet café owners. With thousands of good, private sector jobs on the line, it is certainly time to regulate, tax and support these small businesses, just as we would any other industry.”
