What Are Video Gaming Terminals?
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 $2.00 per spin, and can win up to $500 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).
