Video Lottery Retailers

Video lottery terminals (vlts) are electronic gaming devices that are conducted and managed by the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) under the province’s Gaming and Liquor Act (Alberta). The AGLC’s goal is to ensure that all games are fair, that gaming activities are conducted honestly, openly and with integrity and that the benefits are returned to Albertans.

A total of 6,000 vlts are managed by the AGLC and are located in age-restricted, liquor-licensed venues under a video retailer agreement. Vlt retailers can have a maximum of 10 vlts, while gaming entertainment centers (GECs) may have between 15 and 30.

Due to outdated technology, the AGLC began replacing the vlts in 2012. The updated terminals have touch screens, LCD button decks and includes improvements such as new games, lighting and enhanced responsible gambling features.

Vlt net revenues go to the Alberta Lottery Fund where it is used to support thousands of volunteer, public and community-based initiatives across the province. Health and wellness programs, education, recreation, and cultural initiatives are some examples of how vlt gaming proceeds are used.
