With the court tossing Public Law 96-34 it has all sorts of implications on video poker.
Assuming the state Supreme Court even offers a stay while the appeal is going on this is going to slow everything up.
It looks like 77 companies have applied to be terminal operators, so if you are one of these guys are you going to acquire machines while this is up in the air? How much are you going to invest in machines, staff and the rest while this is up in the air? So regardless this going to slow everything up.
If the court does not offer a stay then I am not even sure if the background checks and everything else can continue at all. If nothing else I doubt they can accept any new applications.
This makes things interesting.
