Guidance Regarding Video Gaming Renewal Fees During the Video Gaming Suspension Period:
The Illinois Gaming Board (the “Gaming Board”) is issuing this guidance to Video Gaming Licensees
regarding payment of license renewal fees during the Statewide Video Gaming Suspension Period in
connection with the COVID-19 pandemic (the “Suspension Period”).
Prior to the Suspension Period, renewal fees for April licensees were due on or before March 31,
- Video Gaming Rule 570 provides that a license expires unless the renewal fee is paid prior to the
license expiration date. In recognition of the hardships caused by this unprecedented public health crisis,
the Gaming Board has extended the March 31, 2020 renewal fee payment deadline. Renewal fees are now
due ten business days after the Gaming Board resumes statewide video gaming operations.
Additionally, and to further alleviate the burdens caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Gaming Board
also suspended billing through at least April 8, 2020. During the Suspension Period, the Gaming Board
will not initiate any enforcement actions or assess any penalties for unpaid license fees that came due
during this period. Please note that payments may still be made online by using the Illinois ePay button at the bottom of the Gaming Board’s website (www.igb.illinois.gov). The Gaming Board encourages all licensees that are able to make payments during the Suspension Period to do so. Such payment will help lessen
administrative backlogs and reduce delays once video gaming operations resume.
If you have any billing or payment related questions, please contact the Gaming Board’s Revenue
Accounting Unit at IGB-RAU@igb.illinois.gov.
