Accel Entertainment was granted its Terminal Operator license by the Illinois Gaming Board on March 15, 2012. Accel was one of the first Terminal Operators to be licensed in the state.
The founders of Accel were business professionals who saw an opportunity for success in the Illinois gaming market. They brought friends and family together to form a company that would focus on developing mutually successful relationships with their customers.
The Illinois Video Gaming Act was enacted on July 13, 2009 to help fund Public Act 96-0034, a $31 billion State infrastructure improvement plan. The Video Gaming Act allowed up to five video gaming terminals (VGTs) to be operated at liquor-licensed establishments, certain fraternal and veterans organizations and truck stops.
On October 9, 2012, the Video gaming market officially commenced live operations.
