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.
