Earlier last week, Illinois Senate approved a very significant gambling expansion bill legalizing sports betting in the state. With the approval of gambling expansion in the state, Chicago is all set to have a new casino along with slot machines installed at both city airports.
However, the question remains where the new land-based casino would be developed. Discussions related to choosing the best casino site in Chicago have started, and many opinions and advice have been coming in.
For many, downtown Chicago would be an ideal location, but significant others are still opposed to having a casino in their area. There are multiple location choices available for developing the Chicago casino.
One option is to build the new casino at the old South Works Steel Mill site. It is being said that opening a casino at the site will also boost local business in the area.
Another popular location which could be considered is the Medway Airport, but then there are concerns being raised about increased traffic in an already traffic-heavy location. Given the casino being at the airport, it could lead to congestion in traffic and may create additional problems.
The proposed Chicago casino will host around 4000 slot machines and several gaming tables.
