Four applicants for Chicago Southland casino license to make their pitch next month

Four Southland applicants in Chicago applying for a license to operate a casino will have a chance to make their pitch, as state gaming officials prepare to narrow the list to three possible sites.

The special Illinois Gaming Board meeting will be held next month, Oct. 13.

The board is expected to make a decision on licenses for both casinos by early January, according to board administrator Marcus Fruchter.
