Video gaming has proliferated in Illinois.
A new state report says that as of June, there were nearly 21,000 video poker machines in Illinois.
Chicago doesn't allow video gaming; even so, there are more terminals in the Chicago metropolitan area than anywhere else in Illinois.
After Cook County, the most machines are in Winnebago, Lake, Will, and Sangamon Counties. The capital city of Springfield tops the list for most video gaming terminals in the state, with nearly 550.
