Valley casinos stand to get more slot machines because of a court ruling.The federal court in Sacramento -- ruled the state miscalculated the number of slot machine licenses that could be given out to casinos under a 1999 gaming agreement with Native American tribes.

The decision means Chukchansi, Tachi Palace, Table Mountain, and Mono Wind casinos all stand to gain more slot machines.

The tribes will find out within forty-five days -- how many more slot machine licenses they'll receive.

A spokesperson for Chukchansi says their casino will likely be awarded an extra two- hundred slot machines.
