Video lottery terminals (VLTs)

Video lottery terminals (VLTs) are electronic gaming devices that are conducted and managed by Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis under the province’s Gaming, Liquor  and Cannabis Act. 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 AGLC and are located in age-restricted, liquor-licensed venues under a video retailer agreement. VLT retailers can have a maximum of 14 VLTs, while gaming entertainment centers (GECs) may have between 15 and 49.

For more information, see section 10 and 11 of the Liquor Licensee Handbook.
