The name of the alternative town in the 1946 movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” is Pottersville.
That’s what happens if the evil banker Harry Potter rules without interference from the Savings and Loan character Jimmy Steward plays.
Crystal Lake ended its holdout to slot machines this past week.
Instead of all council members voting, “No,” this time around there were only two negative votes:
- Brett Hopkins
- Cathy Ferguson
But, the Council did not go full Pottersville.
State law allows five machines per bar.
Taverns in Crystal Lake will be limited to three slot machines.
The only town left without slot machines is Lakewood and it has no bars–just two golf clubs that are doing so well.
