After years of negotiation and waiting, video gaming is finally available in Illinois. Statewide sales are estimated at over $1 billion per year and, by law, 35% of revenues must be paid to the site owner.
Utilizing the examples of other states including Louisiana, Oregon and West Virginia, Illinois has developed a system that keeps gaming above board with strong regulatory oversight effectively elminating the market for the illegal "gray game" activities. This system will attract a broader audience, reduce crime, add jobs, support local businesses and communities and supply state revenue without increasing taxes.
