Video gambling - It's not just for casinos or bars anymore. The Godfather's Pizza on Dirksen Parkway has become one of the latest local businesses to install video gaming machines. Five terminals went online last week at the pizza place. Owner Mike Monseur says the machines are in a private room, and no one under 21 is allowed inside. He says customer use of the gaming devices has been steady and growing and the feedback has been positive.
Video gambling outside of casinos only became legal in Illinois late last year. Proceeds from the machines are split between the business owner, the state, and local governments.
