Video lottery terminal machines

Video Lottery Terminals (VLT) are the most recently introduced machines in the legal gaming sector. VLTs represent an evolution of traditional AWPs.

VLTs differ from AWPs because they are terminals connected to a central gaming system, without having a gaming card installed in them. The game and its outcome are processed by the central system and then displayed on the VLT screen.

Most of these machines are multi-game terminals that allow various games to be played on the same VLT. The most popular games are roller-based.

Minors under the age of 18 are absolutely prohibited from playing.

How to play

The cost of a game varies from a minimum of €0.5 to a maximum of €10. VLTs accept coins, banknotes and gaming tickets.

It is usually possible to choose between various games on the same machine.

The percentage of receipts paid out in winnings may not be less than 85%.
Up to €5,000 can be won.

Where applicable, national and local jackpots can be won (up to €500,000 and €100,000, respectively).

Winnings are paid out in the form of a printed ticket indicating the amount to collect. To receive winnings, players must present the ticket to the gaming establishment operator. If the amount is greater than €1,000, anti-money laundering regulations apply.

Where to play

Video Lottery Terminals can only be installed in bingo halls, sports betting agencies, horse racing betting agencies, horse racing and sports betting shops, gaming establishments and, finally, in subsection 6 special purpose establishments (article 9, Decree of 22 January 2010).

The aforementioned venues must have a surface area equal to or greater than 50 sq m; the ratio between surface area and number of VLTs must be as follows:

  • from 50 to 100 sq m, up to 30 VLTs;
  • from 101 to 300 sq m, up to 70 VLTs;
