[1] Number of Machines in use
[2] Number of bets placed on a machine per hour [3] hours each machine is in operation and being bet at the average bet rate and average bet listed above [4] 8.7 Million People over 18 in Illinois [5] Calculated by the average bet and average bets per hour [6] In hours |

I have done a google spreadsheet here.

Assuming the tax rate is 30% on the net (earnings after payouts). To get to 236 Million a year of revenue there would have to be 100,000 machines (one for every 87 people over 18) being played with an average bet of $0.75 30 times an hour for 12 hours.

Or another way to think of it.

Every person over 18 would have to bet about $1,100 a year. At the average rate of betting listed above each person over 18 would have to spend 50 hours a year playing video poker.

Follow the link to see the sheet, if you want to edit it, let me know.
