Mobile billboard draws attention to games
Updated: Nov 15, 2021
A mobile billboard traveled through the area Tuesday calling attention to so-called illegal slot machines and skills games.
The folks behind the mobile sign, Pennsylvanians Against Gaming Expansion, are asking people to call a hotline to report these machines, which they say harm children.
"We're here today to draw attention to an issue this community is painfully aware of.
The explosion of illegal slot machines across the state," said Pete Shelly, a spokesman for the group, at a news conference in downtown Hazleton.
