Illinois Casinos Post $114.4 Million In Revenue For December

The Illinois Gaming Board (IGB) reported casino revenue totaling $114.4 million for the month of December, as the gaming discipline generated $290 million in state tax revenue for the 2022 calendar year.

Overall, the state’s 11 venues generated $1.35 billion in operator revenue in 2022, an increase of 13.6% compared to the $1.19 billion generated in 2021. The two numbers are not true like-for-like comparisons, as capacity limits were in place in the early part of 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Hard Rock opened its temporary venue in Rockford in November of that year.

In addition to the state tax revenue, local communities and municipalities received more than $75.6 million in tax receipts. The inflow of taxes to state coffers was $41.3 million more than last year, as benchmarks in revenue were reached by each operator.
