(RALEIGH) - It came as no surprise. The State Senate voted overwhelming, by a 44 to one vote, to get rid of video poker. "I do believe our state will be a better place because of this,? said Sen. Charles Alberston, a Democrat who represents Duplin, Lenoir, and Sampson counties. As the law is now, a retailer can not have more than three video poker machines. By October, the bill reduces the number to two. By March, retailers will be allowed only one machine. And, by next July, video poker will be history, except on Native American Reservations. The State Senate overwhelmingly voted to ban video poker. Proponents say getting rid of the machines will make North Carolina a better place. The Senate has voted multiple times to ban video poker. But for years, the State House has resisted such a measure. Last week, the House passed the bill 114 to one.
