Keno may soon be legal in Connecticut. It’s a lottery-like electronic game, and lawmakers say it could bring in between $30 and $60 million a year in state revenue. The state faces a projected deficit of more than a billion dollars a year.

Governor Dannel Malloy wants lawmakers to call a special session to re-examine taxes in the budget. Once Malloy signs the budget into law, residents could expect to see Keno within six months.

New Yorkers are deciding Tuesday if they want to allow seven new Las Vegas-style casinos in the state.

A poll released on Monday finds the positive wording of a November ballot amendment to expand gambling in New York State is influencing voters.  The poll finds a majority of New York voters support the amendment. 

 A New York Supreme Court judge has thrown out a lawsuit challenging the wording of a November ballot amendment. The amendment calls for the expansion of gambling in New York.
