Rogue slot machine company found guilty of felony illegal gambling in western Missouri Jack Suntrup, Post-Dispatch · September 24, 2020 at 3:03 pm A Platte County Circuit Court judge on Tuesday found a Kansas-based company guilty of promoting illegal gambling in the first degree, a class E felony that carries a fine of up to $10,000. The ruling against Shawnee, Kansas-based Integrity Vending LLC likely will have wide-ranging consequences: gaming companies have long argued that their machines are legal under Missouri law; the Missouri Highway Patrol and some county prosecutors have disagreed, saying the machines are illegal gambling devices. Observers had long awaited Judge Thomas Fincham’s ruling for clarity on what kind of games Missouri law actually allows. Fincham held a trial on Aug. 25. He scheduled a sentencing hearing for 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 23.
