Iowa LotteryIowa Lottery: Iowans Want TouchPlay Video Lottery Machines

A new poll shows most Iowans favor keeping the Lottery's TouchPlay machines.

A Des Moines Register Iowa poll shows 41 percent of adults want lawmakers to remove the TouchPlay machines, which closely resemble slot machines, from the 2,600 locations around the state that currently have them.

But 26 percent favor making more machines available as long as rules against use by minors are followed.

Another 27 percent would permit the TouchPlay games already in place, but prohibit installation of more machines.

Critics said the machines will lead to more gambling addiction, but supporters say the state and small-town businesses will lose too much money if the machines are banned.
