What is Illinois Gaming and how can you profit from it?

Video gaming terminals, commonly referred to as VGTs, are multi-game slot machines substantially similar to those found on the boats. Each VGT offers a variety of different popular and proven games including video poker and slot games. Players can wager as little as $.01 to as much as $4.00 per spin, and can win up to $1,199 per spin. Each VGT is connected to a centralized computer system monitored by Scientific Games (SciGames), who implements and administers a Central Communications System (CCS) in conjunction with the Illinois Gaming Board (IGB).

The Terminal Operator

The terminal operator is responsible for placing VGTs in licensed establishments. 777 is proud to be one of the finest terminal operators licensed in the state of Illinois. 777 Gaming LLC provides and maintains the VGTs at no cost to the establishment and manages all cash handling, including customer payouts for winnings via an automated kiosk payout device. This eliminates the need for employees to handle cash transactions. The VGTs we install are made by nationally recognized slot manufacturers including Bally, Spielo, LGT, and WMS.

Restaurant / Bar

The retail establishment license is the most common issued license by the 777 issued to restaurants and bars. To qualify as a licensed retail establishment you must be a licensed pour establishment, holding both a local and state on-premise liquor license.


Fraternal Organizations & Veterans Clubs

Fraternal organizations and veterans establishments qualify to be licensed establishments and must have a charter derived from a national organization and meet regularly, as well as hold both a local and state on-premise liquor license.



Truck Stops

In order to qualify as a licensed truck stop establishment, the following minimum requirements must be met:

1. Must be at least a 3 acre facility with a convenience store
2. Must have a separate diesel island for fueling commercial vehicles
3. Must sell more than 10,000 gallons of diesel fuel per month
4. Must provide parking space for commercial motor vehicles



Revenue Share

Specifies how the gaming income is to be split between the state of Illinois, the local municipality, the licensed establishment and the terminal operator. The Net Terminal Income (NTI) that is split is the difference between the cash inserted into the game less the cash prizes paid out. The NTI is collected by the terminal operator and paid to the various constituencies in accordance with the Act.
