Mother of two suing Chuck E Cheese for 'illegal gambling devices'

The company that owns Chuck E Cheese is being sued.  According to a San Diego newspaper, a California woman filed the lawsuit, claiming some of the children's games are illegal gambling devices.

She says the games are like slot machines because they operate by tokens, which are purchased with money.

And, when games are finished, the machines dispense tickets which can be turned in for prizes.  Denise Keller, a mother of two, filed the lawsuit in March. 

Court documents show she is asking for at least five million dollars.  Keller's agent says the lawsuit is to prevent Texas-based C-E-C Entertainment, Inc. from keeping machines in its game rooms.
