A new report shows that roughly 3,000 video gambling terminals opened in Illinois last year, generating growing profits for some communities. The figures released by the Illinois Gambling Board also reveal that accompanying revenue rose from $228 million in 2015 to $277 million during 2016. This growth comes as state lawmakers decide whether to expand gambling with six new casinos as part of a wide-ranging budget plan.
