2020 has been a life-changing year for everybody – even Accel! Despite the major setbacks caused by the coronavirus outbreak, we continued to see growth in 2020. We currently operate 10,346 machines at 2,290 locations in Illinois. Let’s take a quick look back through 2020 and see what we accomplished this year and look ahead to see what we want to do in 2021!
The Mind Blowing Giveaway
This year, we launched our Mind Blowing Giveaway promotion with the help of our participating partner locations! We have had over 16,000 players enter for the chance to win one of our exciting prizes! What made this giveaway so different? First of all, each month we encouraged the public to vote on what prizes they wanted to win in the Mind Blowing Giveaway. Second of all, we had TWO big winners each month, one from Northern Illinois and one from Southern Illinois. The Mind Blowing Giveaway draws to a close at the end of 2020, and we want to give a big thank you to all of our players who made an entry! You can check out our full list of winners here on our website!
Accel Entertainment Scores Big with AE.Bet
In early 2020, Accel took our first big step into the world of online sports betting with the creation of AE.Bet. AE.Bet is a free-to-play website where players can create accounts and make a series of picks on upcoming sporting events with the possibility to win big cash prizes! Did we mention the best part? It’s totally free to enter!
Every week, Accel Entertainment is posting new and exciting games to AE.Bet for players to make their picks on – including the biggest games in football, UFC, hockey, and more! Cash prizes are awarded every Monday to those lucky individuals who win. Players can see the upcoming games and prizes on our social media pages or featured on TV monitors in certain Accel Entertainment locations around the State.
