What did you spend your tax return on? Despite having less days in the month, $29 million more dollars was wagered in video gaming machines in Illinois in February than was in January.

In the Illinois Valley, Ottawa just barely edged Streator having the most video gaming action last month. According to state numbers, $1.72 million was wagered in Ottawa compared to $1.71 million in Streator.

Peru and La Salle also are in the million dollar club when it comes to video gambling. In Peru, $1.3 million was wagered last month in gaming machines compared to just over a million dollars in La Salle.
