Provides factors to be considered by the Board in determining restrictions on licenses in malls. Provides that the Board shall presume that the granting of an application to become a licensed video gaming location within a mall will cause a terminal operator to operate the video gaming terminals in 2 or more licensed video gaming locations as a single video gaming operation if the Board determines that granting the license would create a local concentration of licensed video gaming locations. Provides that a home rule municipality, or a home rule county with respect to unincorporated portions of the county, may impose separate requirements on video gaming that provide sources of municipal or county revenue or impose limitations on video gaming that are more restrictive than those provided under the Act.
