WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WIFR) -- Most video gambling machines in our area have been turned on. However, they still aren't allowed in parts of unincorporated Winnebago County.

County committee members have agreed to join surrounding communities in allowing state run gambling. The full board still needs to approve the change. There are only a dozen bars in unincorporated Winnebago County that could have the machines. So a few board members feel the five percent cut the county would get, is better than nothing.
