House Bill 594, better known as the bill to ban unregulated and untaxed gaming machines known as “gray machines” in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, was signed into law Thursday, Mar. 16 by Governor Andy Beshear. Kentucky is the first state to pass stand-alone legislation banning unregulated gambling machines.
