Video Gaming Licenses

In September 2019, Schaumburg officials voted to repeal the ban on video gaming and have created a new ordinance that includes village-imposed regulations that will apply to businesses interested in providing video gaming as part of their operations.

From January 1, 2020, to December 31, 2020, only existing Village of Schaumburg Liquor License holders that have held a liquor license for at least one (1) year without incident are eligible to seek a “Class V” Liquor License with Video Gaming.

Before beginning the video gaming liquor licensing process with the Village of Schaumburg, please ensure the establishment meets all requirements of the Illinois Video Gaming Act as well as the requirements of the Village of Schaumburg ordinance. The State of Illinois Video Gaming Location License must be obtained before a Village of Schaumburg Liquor License will be issued; however, an establishment may choose to get started with the village’s licensing process prior to receiving their State license.

Prospective businesses will be able to apply for a Class A-V, Class C-V, F-1-V, or Class F-2-V liquor license on January 2, 2021. Additional information regarding this process will be available later in 2020.

Detailed requirements and the full licensing process are available on the village’s website. Questions can be directed to Carmen Selke at cselke@schaumburg.com or by dialing 311 in the village.
