VGT Illinois Facebook and Twitter sites offer sweepstakes, geo-location of machines in state

Video Gaming Technologies, Inc. (VGT), a leading manufacturer of video gaming terminals for the Illinois market as well as Class II and emerging gaming devices, has introduced social media platformsto increase awareness about the company's Vega$ Jackpot$ terminals in operation throughout the state of Illinois.

In an effort to generate buzz and excitement about players now having the option of playing their favorite terminals at local taverns, VGT has created the Vega$ Jackpot$ Facebook page and Twitter Feed.

In launching these two new platforms, VGT hosted a Cherry 96 sweepstakes where one lucky winner walked away with over $300 worth of VGT prizes. The sweepstakes, which included a targeted Facebook advertising campaign, grew the fan base to over 1,100 in just four weeks.

  In addition to the Cherry 96 sweepstakes, the Vega$ Jackpot$ page also includes an interactive Google map that shows players where all Vega$ Jackpot$® terminals are located across the state. VGT will continue to update this map to inform players about new video gaming locations.
