RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — As per the approval for the bill by the State House on Thursday, a deal has been struck between tribal leaders and Gov. Beverly Perdue, authorizing Cherokee Indian Casino in western North Carolina to host the live dealer games. That facilitates the players to try their hands on craps, poker and roulette and approx 400 jobs for the job seekers.
Rep. Roger West expressed that live people would replace the machines and the tourism industry would get a boost. An amount of $90 million would be generated as casino revenues through this 30-year old agreement that would be utilized by the state for school districts.
Different persons commented in different tones. Rep. Ray Rapp, D-Madison, voted against the bill. He opined that North Carolina should not become a place of gambling. Rev. Mark Creech joined him by saying that the bill would expand gambling through Las Vegas-style games to North Carolina. He warned against the adverse effects, e.g. addiction and huge debts. However, Rep. Mike Hager, R-Rutherford was of the view that making casino jobs available for the people of far western North Carolina was better than let them live in poverty. He wanted them to work rather than stay idle.
