The owners of the Lucky 7 arcades in Danvers and Gloucester that were raided and closed by the state last year have turned down a deal with Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office.

The Salem News reported that the family continues its fight and rejected a plea deal. The family was offered the deal a month ago, but there is no word as to details of the offer, reported The Salem News.

The state charged that the adult penny arcade with a location at the Liberty Tree Mall promoted a lottery and unlawfully operated games. While Coakley’s office said the games at Lucky 7 did not involve skill, the owners said the gaming machines were not slot machines and involved skill, reported the Salem News.

The arcade was for adults 21 and over and included 8-liner video games that “mimic traditional slots,” according to the owners.
