Five of the first video gaming machines in Illinois have arrived at a Joliet bar.

They were installed Wednesday morning at Izzy's Tavern on Theodore Street.

The machines are not up and running yet because they need to be tested first. They have to function with a computer command center that controls such things as when they're on and off.

Izzy's is one of five test sites for the gambling machines.
