Video Lottery Terminals in the Missouri Market
There has been an increased interest in the Missouri video gaming market in recent years due to proposed bills legalizing this form of gambling. For now, the placement and usage of video lottery terminals (VLTs) is still illegal in Missouri; however, that might change soon! If it does, establishments will want to be well-versed in all requirements associated with joining the Missouri video gaming market.
Since there is not a proposed bill that has become law, it is difficult to know exactly the types of locations that will qualify. Additionally, we do not know for sure how many VLGTs each location will be permitted to have, but we believe five (5) VLGTs per location will be most likely.
Retail establishments that are licensed lottery game retailers and also licensed to sell liquor.
Truck stops located on three contiguous acres within 2000 feet of an interstate or major highway that sell more than 25,000 gallons diesel/month.
Establishments that primarily cater to patrons of a fraternal or veterans organization that sell liquor, wine or beer at retail.
Must be 21. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, help is available.
