The Hall County Board of Commissioners started the process of looking into taxing the revenue of skill-based cash devices Tuesday morning.
Most casino slot machines are built on chance but in skill games, the outcome is more dependent on the skills of the user. Another difference is casino games are subject to taxes, whereas skill-based gaming machines are not.
Near the end of the board’s time with the issue, Fonner Park CEO Chris Kotulak gave a short statement to the board. He said that the proliferation of the skill-based gaming machines could work to hinder the development at Fonner Park and building the $100 million plus casino on the north end of the grandstand.
