Lawmakers in Connecticut said they would halt plans to implement Keno games in the state.

Keno was approved last year as a way to generate more revenues. But key lawmakers and even Gov. Dannel P. Malloy (D) say the games aren't needed anymore.

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and the Mohegan Tribe share 25 percent of slot machines with the state. Malloy had reportedly been talking to the tribes about reducing the rate to 12.5 percent once Keno games came online.
