Are Slot Machines Legal In Virginia

Laws restricting noncommercial ownership/use of mechanical & digital games of chance

The machines are called gray machines because they operate in a gray area of the law. The games look and play like slot machines, though the manufacturers say there is an element of skill involved. Unlike many other US states, which restrict the ownership and display of slot machines to games “twenty-five years old or older,” Virginia’s law is pragmatic. So long as the game you display doesn’t “ eject something of value,” it’s legal.

It’s very popular among those who want to test the waters butaren’t ready to commit money to play at the casino. Online slots free bonus no deposit required.
