… the 80-year-old law, tied to anti-gambling ordinances, will be reversed

What on earth does it mean to reverse a law? Make compulsory what was previously forbidden. Or vice-versa? The word is repeal.

Unless of course they really do mean to criminalize non-pinball players - or is it the mere possession or ownership of the machines? Even the concept of legal reversal is ambiguous. But - either way - this could be fun.
