Location Feature: Good Time Gaming

August 16, 2019

At Accel Entertainment, we’re always looking for locations offering unique services to their customers. That’s why we’re proud to feature Good Time Gaming in Belvidere, Illinois.

Good Time Gaming is a gaming lounge located inside a drive-through liquor store. It’s the one of few drive-through liquor stores in Boone and Winnebago county. And while that’s certainly a great way to attract customers, Good Time Gaming also features a high-end gaming lounge to attract their players. Good Time Gaming only opened this past May but has already found great success in the Illinois video gaming industry.

Owner George Sabino envisioned creating a Vegas-like atmosphere at Good Time Gaming. The lounge features couches and plenty of seating for patrons, fun interior design (including the unique carpet design, that George is very proud of) as well as a bar.

“Good Time Gaming is a friendly place, kind of like Cheers,” George says. “It’s the kind of place where you can come in, sit down, have a craft beer or a cocktail. We’re just trying to create a high-end gaming lounge atmosphere.”

One interesting note about Good Time Gaming is it’s currently located in a building that previously belonged to a fast food chain. The building was vacant for years, so when George opened Good Time Gaming in the location, many customers were curious to check out the new business located in the long-abandoned burger stop.

One thing that helps Good Time Gaming stand out is its personable staff. The employees at Good Time Gaming always make sure to welcome everyone to the lounge and make everyone feel at home – something that does not go unnoticed by slot players!

Good Time Gaming also makes sure to offer only the best to their customers. They offer a wide selection of spirits for their customers to purchase, and they also serve coffee roasted locally in Rockford, just down the road from Good Time Gaming. Every morning, they provide free donuts from Roll N Donut, a popular bakery located in Belvidere. Also, they recently began Mimosa Mondays, where customers can enjoy the popular brunch beverage to add a little fun to their morning gaming.

In the future, George would like to start holding major events in the Good Time Gaming parking lot. The location has a large parking lot with extra handicap spaces. He hopes to perhaps hold a wine tasting or similar event, and perhaps start hosting local food trucks in his lot as well.

George says his experience with Accel Entertainment has been “very positive.” He plans on opening more Good Time Gaming locations in other parts of the state, and is planning to partner with Accel for those locations as well. Good Time Gaming is also a part of Accel Entertainment’s Million Dollar Giveaway, and the staff frequently encourage their customers to check in while visiting their establishment.

If you’re in the Belvidere area and are looking to check out a high-end gaming lounge, or if you’re just in the market for a drive-through liquor store, be sure to head over to Good Time Gaming.
