The South Dakota House has killed a bill to allow an increase in the number of video lottery machines allowed in gas stations and other establishments.
Representatives voted 44-26 against the measure.
It would have increased the number of permitted machines from 10 to 15.
Opponents of the bill say gambling addiction is serious problem in the state. They say this expansion will further harm addicts and their families.
Supporters say gambling brings in substantial tax revenue to the state and there is demand for more of these machines. They say killing the bill would not stop gambling vices.
