Video Gamblers Lose Nearly $1.5 Million in City Machines in May

Posted by wlpo on June 15, 2016

Video gaming machines might have been busy in May, but that doesn’t quite mean they were lucky.

Ottawa had nearly $1.9 million played last month, and players in the city lost nearly $450,000. Streator machines paid out $380,000 less than they took in on more than $1.6 million in play.

Gaming in Peru had a similar result as Streator where a little over $350,000 was lost by gamblers. La Salle losses were the least of cities that had more than a million-dollars played, at nearly $290,000.

In Bureau County the luck was headed the same way. While only $800,000 went into machines in Princeton, players there ended up losing a little more than $200,000.
