County board gives the nod to video gaming
PRINCETON — The Bureau County Board has given its OK to permit video gaming in the county’s 12 licensed liquor establishments.
Board member Bob McCook raised the issue at Tuesday’s county board meeting by asking Bureau County State’s Attorney Pat Herrmann for a summary of the board’s choices.

Liquor licensed establishments can apply to the Illinois Gaming Board for a license for the digital gambling machines, which provide games such as video poker and blackjack. Licensed businesses may provide up to five video gaming machines in their establishments. Gamers may not bet more than $2 per spin, and the maximum pay-out on any one play is $500. Herrmann said the county had three options.
