The Illinois Video Gaming Act was enacted on July 13, 2009, legalizing the use of video game terminals in authorized and licensed establishments, including, taverns, restaurants with liquor licenses, truck stops, fraternal organizations and veteran organizations. The Illinois Video Gaming Act is a brand new potential revenue stream for eligible establishments, suppliers, terminal operators, manufacturers and distributors. However, this industry will be heavily regulated and require comprehensive and sometimes complex license application procedures. While the Act has not gone into effect yet (Game Terminals not permitted in Illinois establishments as of yet) the Law Office of Nir Basse will be ready on Day 1 to assist eligible establishments and terminal operators to secure the necessary licensing and begin benefiting from the Video Gaming Act. Don’t lose time and money by not being ready on Day 1.
A Video Game Terminal is any electronic gaming machine that, upon insertion of cash, is available to play or simulate the play of a video game (including, but not limited to, video poker, line-up and blackjack) featuring a video display and microprocessors, where the player may receive free games or credits that can be redeemed for cash.
The types of license classifications and the license fees vary and it is important to know all the rules and regulations of the Act. The Law Office of Nir Basse has been following the development of this Act from its conception through its enactment and is in a unique position to offer clients fast and efficient service in securing the necessary licenses as soon as allowed by the law. My clients will not only get full-service assistance in securing the licenses, but will be explained the Act in full detail and will be provided with all the necessary literature and documentation to assure complete adherence to the strict rules and regulations included in the Act.
