Israel’s Supreme Court: Points-only Gambling Machines Illegal
Gambling machines that offer winners points to play more games instead of cash are illegal, according to a decision handed down Monday in an appeal heard by the Israeli Supreme Court, The Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday.
Amos Romano, the owner of “Dallas Snooker,” a games parlor, and his employee, Aharon Babani, had submitted the appeal, the paper said.
Although the parlor was licensed, the police raided the enterprise, the paper said, adding that the police seized 27 games, and charged the two with violating the Penal Law by offering prohibited games.
Gambling is illegal in Israel according to the Penal Law. Many Israelis used to go to casinos in the PA autonomous territories, mainly in Jericho to gamble. But the Israeli authorities have banned these as well - Albawaba.com
