Small-stakes gambling legalized in Indiana

 A new Indiana law that authorizes bars to offer small-stakes gambling goes into effect on Tuesday. The new law will allow bars and restaurants in the state to offer several small-stake gambling options, including tip boards, raffles, drawings and pull tabs. This type of paper gambling was already allowed at social and veterans clubs, but the state's lawmakers legalized the form of gambling to include bars and restaurants. According to reports, over 500 establishments have already applied for license to sell the pull tabs. In order to qualify, a business must have a liquor license, as well. Casino and horse track gambling is already legal in the state of Indiana.
