Several Native American tribes have sent a letter to Idaho officials, urging them to stop the proliferation on instant racing machines in the state.
The machines became legal after the state Legislature approved a bill in 2013. The machines are being operated at several sites around the state including the Greyhound park in Post Falls. The machines use videos of various unidentified horse races that players bet on.
Coeur d'Alene tribal spokeswoman Heather Keen says the law allows for the machines to be less regulated than the betting machines the tribes operate.
