This video shows how instant racing slot machines really work
Casino gambling machines could be coming to your community unless you make your voice heard.
Please contact Governor Otter and Idaho’s Representatives today by using the form below to demand their action.
Vegas-style slot machines – disguised as a way to bet on old horse races – have already invaded Les Bois Park in the Treasure Valley, Double Down Betting, Sports Bar and Grill in Idaho Falls and the Greyhound Park in Post Falls. This new form of casino gambling is called “Instant Racing.”
Instead of betting on horse races, people are betting on spinning fruit and piles of gold on Instant Racing machines with names like “Very Cherry” and “Yukon Willie's Gold Rush.” Spinning cherries have nothing to do with horses.
When lawmakers passed legislation in 2013, most of them never intended to see slot machines pop up across Idaho. Not only are these machines illegal under Idaho’s constitution – they are an unauthorized expansion of gambling in Idaho that was never approved by our citizens. Lawmakers and Idahoans are clearly the victims of a classic bait and switch.
Use the form below to tell Governor Otter and the Idaho House of Representatives to repeal Instant Racing and to support Senate Bill 1011.
