Three Illinois casinos move to the next stage
On Wednesday, Gov. J.B. Pritzker was downstate in Carterville to break ground on a new gaming facility at the Walker's Bluff winery.
The Illinois Gaming Board determined last June that Walker’s Bluff is suitable for licensure. The new resort is slated to include a 116-room hotel along with a gaming floor, event center and numerous restaurants.
Officials say 1,100 construction jobs will be created for the project, and also 330 permanent jobs at the resort.
