Live Video Gaming centers now available!

Hoopeston City voted to allow Video Gaming and it is now available at Fast Lanes, BJ’s Pump and the VFW# Post.
At present there are only 4 “live centers” in Vermilion County and Hoopseston has 3 of them.

Video poker is part of a 2009 capital improvement bill approved by state officials. Under the bill, Illinois will get 30 percent of the gross total receipts. Of that, five percent will be returned to municipalities that have approved the gaming.
