Gambling Ban Survives Chuck E. Cheese Challenge | This Week in Gambling - News |

Goose Creek says no to sweepstakes parlors, yes to animatronic mouse.

The City of Goose Creek has banned sweepstakes parlors, a new venue for video gaming machines that cluttered gas stations across the state a decade ago before gambling on these devices was banned.

Last week, the City Council gave final approval to the sweepstakes parolor ban, but not before fielding some complicated questions from residents wondering about the impact on everything from Chuck E. Cheese to World of Warcraft.
