Bingo and Gaming International announced Thursday that the Los Angeles Superior Court has ruled that the ‘Lucky Strike’ machines are not gambling devices. The machines, which resemble the one-armed bandits sell pre-paid phone cards. At the same time of purchase, the machines enter the customer in a promotional sweepstakes which offers cash prizes from $1 to $1,000. What makes this legal is the fact that no purchase is necessary to play and the odds of winning are posted on the side of the machine. Look for the ‘Lucky Strike’ pre-paid phone card vending machines to start appearing by the years end.
