Mom Sues Chuck E. Cheese, Claims Games Are Illegal




    A San Diego woman is suing the company that owns Chuck E Cheese.

    Denise Keller claims many of the games intended for children are actually illegal gambling devices and can be addicting.

    According to court documents, Keller is asking for a jury trial and restitution of at least $5 million dollars.

    In her complaint, Keller says the arcade games are like slot machines because you insert tokens, and get tickets for prizes when you win.

    Attorneys for the company responded saying the games are not illegal under state law. They have filed a motion asking a federal judge to dismiss the case.

    Keller, a mother of two girls aged 3 and 5, said she has taken the kids to the restaurant's location in La Mesa's Grossmont Center on numerous occasions.
