Missouri voters OK measure related to bingo games

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri voters have approved a constitutional amendment that changes the experience necessary to run a bingo game.

Amendment 4 narrowly passed on Tuesday. It was among several ballot issues facing Missouri voters.

The amendment also removes constitutional language prohibiting advertising of bingo games.
