Video Gaming Continues to Rise

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The number of video gaming machines in the Stateline is on the rise.

There are now 361 machines in bars and restaurants across Winnebago County, which is up 7 percent from April. Local gamblers are still contributing quite a bit to state coffers.

Illinois' capital fund made nearly half a million dollars in Winnebago County alone last month, that's 9 percent of the state's total share in May.
