An ordinance amendment approved Aug. 5 by the Frankfort Village Board of Trustees prohibits sweepstake machines within the Village’s limits.

Trustee Keith Ogle said the Village had adopted an ordinance in 2010 that prohibited video gambling within the boundaries of Frankfort. The State of Illinois legalized video gambling in 2009.

Since then, Ogle said, there has been a rise in unregulated sweepstake machines.
