Missed Deadline, Gaming Board Picks Union Gaming For Feasibility Study

The Illinois Gaming Board has announced that they have chosen Vegas-based Union Gaming to conduct a feasibility study for a casino in Chicago.

After Governor JB Pritzker signed a massive gambling expansion bill last month, six new casinos have been allowed at six different locations.

In a statement released upon selecting Union Gaming for the feasibility study, the Gaming Board said: “Union Gaming Analytics was selected following a competitive bidding process compliant with the Illinois Procurement Code. The IGB received a total of three bids. Two of the bids were disqualified as untimely because they were received after the bidding process deadline had passed.”

Union Gaming has ninety days to present its report to Pritzker, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, and lawmakers.

The state authorities had missed the first deadline in the process of developing a new casino in Chicago. The feasibility consultant was to be hired by Monday, last week.

While Union Gaming has 45 days to complete the research and submit it to the city council, the city would have another 90 days to propose and bring changes according to the report. It would also have the power to alter the regulations related to the licensing of casino in Chicago.

The budget for the study should not exceed $101,800 and is paid by the city.
