Sweepstakes machines are now legal in Macon County. The on-again-off-again cycle of their legality only shows the language is limited, and anybody rich enough to get persnickety lawyers can work around the spirit of the law. Local governments, right or wrong, have been saying they do not want the machines in their communities, but between the lines the parts of “no” for the owner/operators not to understand are infinite.
