The Illinois Gaming Board has approved Incredible Technologies’s application for manufacturer and distributor licenses under the Video Gaming Act. The approval permits the company to sell its Magic Touch Illinois Video Gaming Terminal (VGT) Collection of video slot and poker games directly to licensed operators when the Video Gaming Act ultimately goes into effect.

This announcement marks the second gaming license the company has been approved for in its home state, as its supplier’s license under the Riverboat Gaming Act was renewed on December 15, 2010. “This accomplishment represents yet another milestone in the evolution of Incredible

Technologies,” said Elaine Hodgson, the company’s president and CEO. “Five years ago we chose gaming as our direction for strategic growth while holding our position of leadership in the amusement industry. Now we’re seeing the amusement industry undergoing that very same diversification into gaming.”

Arlington Heights, Ill.-based Incredible Technologies plans to offer over 30 video slot and poker games purpose-built for the Illinois market.
