SALAMANCA, NY (WIVB) - The Seneca Gaming Authority wants Salamanca clubs to stop selling pull-tab gaming tickets.
The Olean Times Herald reports that at least three organizations – the Salamanca American Legion, the Salamanca Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Holy Cross Athletic Club – all received letters with a cease and desist order to stop selling pull-tabs.
The veterans groups responded to Seneca Gaming by proving they have the proper credentials issued by New York State to sell the tickets.
The American Legion has been selling the gaming tickets since the late 1980’s and say the money raised is what keeps the organization going.
The groups are awaiting answers from Seneca Gaming.
