Video Gaming Expands In Springfield


More Springfield establishments have been approved for video gambling terminals by the State of Illinois. The state Gaming Board issued licenses in October for four Springfield bars… the Bird Tavern on West Jefferson, Bob’s Butternut Hut on 2nd Street, the Converse Street Bar, and Starship Billiards on Stevenson. In addition, two Road Ranger truck stops, on Toronto Road and Sangamon Avenue, were awarded licenses.

 

But the Gaming Board website says American Legion Post 32 on Sangamon Avenue was denied a license. Mike Walton with Post 32 says the denial was based on a technicality, and says a revised license application has already been submitted.

 

Approved facilities can have up to five video gambling terminals that are linked to the state. Both state and local governments will get a cut of the revenue generated by them.
