Illinois Gaming Board delays decision eliminating Chicago-area casino contender

Illinois gaming regulators put off a decision Wednesday on narrowing the field of four applicants for a south suburban casino to three, after spending hours hearing presentations from the contenders.

Fruchter said the gaming board remains on pace to grant the license to one of the four applicants by early January.
