How to become Licensed

What you need to do

Does your city allow gaming?

Check the Illinois ‘Opt Out List.’ You can find it here:

Liquor License

If you don’t yet have an on premise liquor license, check with your city or municipality to see if one is available or can be created, so you may pursue Illinois Video Gaming.

IGB Location Application

Fill out your Illinois Gaming Board Location Application online here: Need assistance with your application? Contact your Regional Manager.


Every owner of an establishment must be fingerprinted by an IGB-approved company. Your Regional Manager will find a fingerprinting location that’s closest to you.
