State: Belmont slot machines violated NH law

State gaming officials ordered the Lakes Region Casino in Belmont to shut down its 96 slot machines earlier this month for allegedly violating state law by paying slot winners with Visa gift cards, according to a “cease and desist” letter sent to the casino. Rick Newman, the casino’s general manager, said the slot machines will return today – with legal payouts.
