NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – New rules for Texas bingo halls are on hold.

The Lottery Commission has delayed making a decision about the use of video confirmation of pull-tab tickets – which critics say would open the door to slot machines in Texas.

The agency delayed the video confirmation idea and a plan to allow multi-play pull-tab bingo tickets.

Supporters have said the changes would mean more money for charitable groups while opponents say it would amount to casino-style gambling.

The Texas Lottery Commission Chairman told a packed house Wednesday that the issue isn’t going away but no date’s been set for another look at the proposals.
