A number of Texas counties are cracking down on operators of video slot parlors, which they say fall outside of Texas law.

Attorneys for the slot operators say Texas law is ambiguous at best, and that law enforcement should wait for the legislature to clarify the issue.

Slot supporters say machines were legalized under a 1995 law aimed at legalizing arcade games that award small trinkets and prizes.
