Summary as enacted with Governor's Recommendation: (all summaries)
Illegal gambling; definitions; free spin devices.  Amends the definition of "illegal gambling" to make it clear that the making, placing or receipt of any bet or wager of money or other thing of value shall include the purchase of a product, which purchase credits the purchaser with free points or other measurable units that may be risked by the purchaser for an opportunity to win additional points or other measurable units that are redeemable by the purchaser for money at the location where the product was purchased.  The bill provides, however, that nothing in this new definition shall be construed or interpreted to prohibit the conduct of a lawful operation of any game, contest, lottery, scheme, or promotional offering which complies with certain requirements. The bill attempts to make machines commonly known as "free spin machines" illegal in Virginia and provides that the provisions of the bill are declaratory of existing law.
