RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) – The Virginia Skill Alliance is calling on state legislators to delay an upcoming ban on skill games in the Commonwealth.
When the pandemic began, a COVID relief fund was created to send 60-percent of profits from skill games. That money would go towards localities and small businesses.
The Virginia Skill Alliance says the fund will raise an estimated $140 million by July.
Currently, a ban on skill games will begin on July 1, 2021, unless the General Assembly allows them to continue to operate.
