NET TERMINAL INCOME BREAKDOWN
The Video Gaming Act has outlined revenue distribution in this way: Net Terminal Income (NTI) is defined as the money put into a VGT minus the credits paid to the player. The State receives 30% of the NTI generated from each licensed VGT (of that, 5% goes to the local municipality). Of the remaining 70% of NTI, a company called Scientific Games receives 0.8513% as compensation for maintaining the Central Communications System [CCS], which all VGTs connect to. The remainder is divided equally between the Terminal Operator (who owns/leases and places the VGTs in locations) and the licensed location.
  • Establishments – 35%
  • Operator – 35%
  • State – 25%
  • Municipality – 5%
