HARTFORD - Connecticut could be getting a new gambling game to help boost the state budget.

Supporters say Keno, similar to Quick Draw in New York, would bring in $28 million, while those opposed say the cost of the machines and supplies would cost the state too much money.

Lawmakers said if the budget does pass, Keno is not a done deal. They would have to speak with the tribal casinos that currently offer the game before moving forward.
