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.

Following a closed-door session, Marcus Fruchter, the gaming board's administrator, said that decision could come up for a vote at the board's Oct. 20 meeting.

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