Illinois Gaming Board
The city of East St. Louis expects no change to its tax revenue from a deal announced this week at the Casino Queen.
The Illinois Gaming Board currently requires casinos to close for at least two hours a day but is considering a plan that would allow owners the option to operate around the clock.
Quinn says its “imperative” that the gaming board oversees a Chicago casino as well as slot machine that could end up in Chicago’s two airports.
Bob Waddell owns a bar outside Keyesport in Clinton County in southwestern Illinois. He made $9,778 in video gambling in December.
Video gambling is up and running in Illinois, at least on a limited basis, and other venues are expected to go live in the coming weeks.
Gov. Pat Quinn is replacing everyone on the Illinois Gaming Board except the chairman.
