Based on the guidance given by the Virgin Islands Department of Health, the Office of the Governor, and the Center for Disease Control, the Virgin Islands Lottery has directed its Video Lottery Terminals contractor - Southland Gaming of the Virgin Islands Inc. (SGVI) to:

  • Restrict the total number of patrons and employees into Retailer locations and Gaming Centers to not more than thirty persons.
  • SGVI will provide more specific guidance to the Retailers with small quantities of VLT’s.
  • Further, every other VLT will be disabled to ensure a safe distance between each patron.
  • SGVI will require Retailers in the district to clean and disinfect all VLT’s after each use by its patrons.
  • We are also asking the Retailers to disinfect all door handles that patrons will use such as bathrooms, entrances and exits.
  • Patrons who manifest signs and symptoms of the virus will not be allowed into the facility.
  • If a patron is feeling any symptoms of the virus, we ask that they refrain from visiting any of the gaming sites.
