Skill games

Katrina Bears, manager of Pat’s Drive-thru Liquor, plays one of the bar’s “skills” games. Pat’s was one of the first businesses in Gillette to install the wagering machines, which now are being regulated by a new state commission.

The city of Gillette’s decision to kill an ordinance to regulate “skills” games does not end a larger debate about whether businesses and organizations across Wyoming should be allowed the have the games.

In March, the Wyoming Legislature created a statewide gaming commission to be in charge of the permitting process for in-state gaming. The commission also will set punishments for rule violations.
