Chicago Casino: City Council Committee Could Take Crucial Vote Monday on $1.7B Bally's Casino

The future of a Bally's Corporation casino planned for River West is on hold for now as City Council Members and a special council committee continue to sort through details of the massive $1.74 billion project.

The deal was expected to get its first vote Friday by a special committee consisting of alderman. However, those on the committee said they had received the first draft of the casino contract just 48 hours earlier -- with several changes made overnight after it was sent. As a result, the committee delayed the vote, saying more time is needed to examine the details.

"We have to make sure they are comfortable, that they have got all the information they need," Mayor Lori Lightfoot's office said. "This is a very big decision that the city council, all 50 of them, have to make.
