The state of Illinois is almost making as much money from the new video gaming machines as from the state’s riverboat casinos. A legislative commission yesterday released the latest gambling figures. The numbers show that more and more people continue to play more and more video gaming machines. The state saw one-point-two billion dollars in taxes from video gaming last year. That’s just under the one-point-four billion that Illinois’ riverboat casinos generated. The report says while more people are playing the video machines, attendance at the state’s casinos continues to slide.
