Prairie State Gaming ordered its first 500 video gaming terminals for placement in licensed establishments on June 4, 2012. “We’re putting our money where our mouth is” stated Prairie State owner Rob Miller. “We made a commitment to hundreds of licensed liquor pouring establishments that we’d purchase and install the best equipment possible, and we’re making good on that promise” Miller added.
As a licensed terminal operator, Prairie State will be able to install video gaming terminals once the terminals are approved for play in Illinois, and then only after receiving all other required approvals, including receipt of an establishment license by each liquor pouring establishment. “While others may promise to deliver terminals, today we made the significant financial commitment necessary to install the machines at our customers’ establishments” said Miller.
The company plans to being installations as soon as permitted, which it believes may be as soon as August 2012.
