Manufacturer Systems of Illinois Gambling Machines
In the not-too-distant past, slot-machine players were the second-class citizens of casino customers. Jackpots were small, payout percentages were horrendous, and slot players just weren’t eligible for the kind of complimentary bonuses — free rooms, shows, meals — commonly given to table players. But in the last few decades, the face of the casino industry has changed. Nowadays, more than 70 percent of casino revenues come from slot machines, and in many jurisdictions, that figure tops 80 percent.
About 80 percent of first-time visitors to casinos head for the slots. It’s easy — drop coins into the slot and push the button or pull the handle. Newcomers can find the personal interaction with dealers or other players at the tables intimidating — slot players avoid that. And besides, the biggest, most lifestyle-changing jackpots in the casino are offered on the slots.
More About Illinois Gambling Machines
Slot machines and other electronic gambling machines (EGMs) are gambling devices that offer various games. They are inexpensive to run, making it possible for casinos to offer low-stakes betting to a large number of customers. As a result, they have become the most profitable form of gambling.
How Do You Play Illinois Gambling Machines?
The equivalent amount of credits is displayed on a meter. On reel-spinning slots, push a button marked “play one credit” until you’ve reached the number of coins you wish to play. Then hit the “spin reels” button, pull the handle on those few slots that still have handles, or hit a button marked “play max credits,” which will play the maximum coins allowed on that machine.
Illinois Gambling Machines of the Future
The lifespan of slot games has changed in the video slot age. Because the popularity of video games can peak and decline within a matter of months, casino operators who wanted to offer their customers the latest video slots had to spend a lot of time changing their machines one at a time. Further aggravating this process, most states required the presence of a gaming board agent when the evidence tape was broken, the old game chip was taken out, a new chip was put in and resealed in the evidence tape, and the machine closed and the paperwork done.
That’s changing with the advent of downloadable and server-based games. Nearly every major slot machine manufacturer showed server-based Illinois gambling machines to the casino industry. With server-based systems, a game theme can change instantly. A dollar game can become a penny game. And it can be done with whole banks of machines at once, not just one machine at a time.
One slot manufacturer’s system shows a diagram of the casino floor. With a click and drag of a computer mouse, the operator can highlight the games to change. Then with the click of a mouse on a pull-down menu, he or she can select a new game theme, several pay lines, coin denomination, and payback percentage. Voila. New games.
Video Gaming is regulated by the Illinois Gaming Board. Licensed establishments can have up to 5 video gaming terminals at their locations.
