OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF THE MISSOURI GAMING ASSOCIATION ON BEHALF OF THE MISSOURI CASINO INDUSTRY
Torch Electronics is an illegal competitor and its illegal gaming devices are harming our members. Torch’s illegal gaming devices take money away from Veterans, local cities and education in the form of lost tax revenue and admission fees, and this needs to be stopped. The Missouri Gaming Association filed an appeal today as we believe that the trial court erred because we have a right to bring an action to stop illegal competitors. We look forward to the decision being reversed, to trying our case and stopping Torch’s illegal competition.
