DOJ proposal would make Oklahoma games illegal

The Department of Justice's proposed Indian gaming law would make most of Oklahoma 29,000 electronic machines illegal, The Oklahoman reports.

DOJ is unveiling legislation that seeks to clarify the difference between Class II and Class III games. Oklahoma is a major Class II market but some of the machines that tribes offer are skirting the lines, according to DOJ.

U.S. Attorney Tom Heffelfinger announced the proposal at the Global Gaming Expo last month. He said draft legislation would be forthcoming but it hasn't yet turned up.
