Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Video Gaming Act. Provides that the Illinois Gaming Board shall not grant an application to become a licensed video gaming location if the Board determines that granting the application would more likely than not cause a terminal operator licensed video gaming location to operate the video gaming terminals in 2 or more licensed video gaming locations as a single video gaming operation. 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. Provides that all current supplier licensees under the Riverboat Gambling Act shall be entitled to licensure under the Video Gaming Act as manufacturers, distributors, or suppliers without additional Board investigation or approval, except by vote of the Board; however, they are required to pay application and annual fees under the Video Gaming Act. Defines terms.
