The state gaming commission claims the decision to allow open boarding has paid off in the last year. The commission says continuous boarding has increased admission fees for the state and for communities with casinos by about $20 million. And commission executive director Mel Fisher says none of the negative things forecast by gambling critics has come about. Gambling opponents also oppose eliminating the $500 dollar loss limit. The state gaming commission says the loss limits hampers the competitive balance between Missouri casinos and those in other states. Changing the limit has to be done by the legislature.
