Gambling Commission Approves Amendment to Casino Compact with Tribes

The Washington's Gambling Commission approves an amendment to its gaming contracts with tribes.

The decision allows for 9,000 more slot machines at tribal casinos like 'Legends' in Toppenish.  It will also allow casinos to stay open 24-hours and raise some betting limits.

But the agreement still needs approval from the Governor and the Interior Department.
