Bally’s Makes Its Pitch For Chicago Casino At Tribune Site

Bally’s Chairman Soo Kim promised to find ways to alleviate traffic concerns, integrate into the River West community, and showcase the “best of Chicago” on Wednesday evening in leading the pitch to local residents for why Bally’s should be the operator Mayor Lori Lightfoot chooses for the highly sought downtown casino license.

Bally’s was one of three finalists picked last month by Lightfoot and the second group to make a presentation to Chicago-area residents in as many days. Kim and his team presented their plan at the Tribune publishing plant, where both the temporary and permanent casino would be built if Bally’s is selected and approved by the Illinois Gaming Board. Hard Rock made its pitch Tuesday evening at Harold Washington Library, and Rush Street will discuss its Rivers 78 proposal in the South Loop area near its proposed site Thursday evening.
