Atlanta council approves video lottery


Atlanta's city council has approved putting video lottery machines in Underground Atlanta.

Backers say the plan, which must be endorsed by the Georgia Lottery Board, could bring about $350 million to the region.

The video terminals OK'd by the council Monday resemble slot machines but operate like Georgia Lottery scratch-off tickets, such as "Slots of Luck" and "Hold'em Poker."

State law prohibits Las Vegas-style casinos, but an Underground Atlanta proposal released in January calls for a $450 million video lottery casino and 29-story hotel at the downtown entertainment district.
