Nebraska senator to introduce legislation to tax "skill games" as they expand in the state

Nebraska state senator wants to introduce legislation to tax "skill games" as they expand in the state. The number of skill games has more than doubled in recent years. They are legal in Nebraska, but require some level of skills to win. There are more skill game machines in Lancaster County than slot machines at the WarHorse Casino. The AGA recently asked the US Department of Justice to intervene and require skill gaming to be regulated as gambling devices. It is estimated that the industry makes $27 billion a year in revenue. A portion of the revenue from casinos and slot machine revenue goes to property tax relief.

Nebraska senator targets 'skill games' for taxation, additional property tax relief

Voters approved casino gaming last year. A portion of the revenue from casinos and slot machines would go to property tax relief. Ho-Chunk Inc. estimates that taxing skill games might increase that by another $20 million. Businesses and charities that own, and profit from, the games are opposed to such a proposal. They say little “skill” is required to play the game and there is little difference between them and the slot machine. Some small businesses install their own skill game machines and make money from it. The Sowers Club of Lincoln makes about $75,000 a year from the 10-12 skillGames it installs in Lincoln sports bars.

Omaha casino development slowly progressing

Nebraska's horse racing industry is counting on the casinos to revitalize the sport of kings in the state. Ho Chunk Inc. is working to develop casinos in Omaha and Lincoln with Nebraska Horsemen. The plan is to build a $200 million facility where Horseman's Park sits. Construction on this facility will hopefully begin in late winter or early spring. The Nebraska Racing and Gaming Commission could release rules and regulations for casinos next week. It's a new law and the process takes a long time. Morgan says it makes sense to get it right. He hopes to have some aspects of the gaming operations going in Nebraska by late summer.
