The November 2014 revenue report has been released by the Illinois Gaming Board and they were slightly down from the month before. The Net Terminal Income was $62,530,030.87 down from October’s $64,501,457.35. The daily average per machine dropped $1.40 to $110.05 for 18,940 machines statewide. Even though the NTI daily average was down compared to October, it was much higher than the November 2013 number of $99.09
Illinois earned $15,632,507.72 in November and is the 10th month in a row of an eight digit figure for the Land of Lincoln. 57 locations were added to the total that now stands at 4,627. Look for a much smaller number of locations to be added in December and January as the December IGB meeting was canceled as there are only three IGB board members and that is the same number as quorum and it has been difficult to get the trinity together.
The meeting issue may be put behind us as a fourth member has been appointed by outgoing governor Quinn. Michael Latz is the newest member and there is talk about new faces joining the board once Bruce Rauner takes the helm in Springfield. This is important as the IGB meetings approve new locations, new operating companies and new licenses that allow technicians work on the machines.
