The Village of Chicago Ridge now allows establishments licensed to sell alcohol for on-site consumption to install up to 5 video gaming terminals for the purpose of video gambling. Businesses must be licensed by the Illinois Gaming Board in order to be licensed by the Village.
Businesses may apply and pay for the Chicago Ridge Video Gaming License while undergoing certification from the state of Illinois. However, the Village gaming license and terminal registration stickers will not be released or delivered until all required documents have been submitted.
All license fees are paid annually as part of the establishment's business license renewal.
Video Gaming License Fee: $250
Video Gaming Terminal Fee: $500 (limit of 5 terminals per establishment)
