  • Determine the type of license you need: In Illinois, there are various types of gaming licenses depending on the type of gaming activities you intend to conduct. This could include licenses for a casino, a video gaming terminal operator, a video gaming location, etc.

  • Gather necessary documents: Once you have identified the appropriate type of license, you'll need to gather the necessary documents. This may include identification documents, financial information, business documents, and so forth.

  • Contact the Illinois Gaming Board (IGB): The Illinois Gaming Board is responsible for regulating gaming activities in the state. Reach out to the IGB to obtain information about the specific requirements and procedures for applying for a gaming license.
