Bally ‘to win Chicago casino licence’

Home » Bally ‘to win Chicago casino licence’

According to anonymous sources quoted by the Chicago Sun-Times, Bally will win the licence to operate the city’s only casino.


The company is the only competitor in the race to operate the new casino that is offering $25m up front. The other bidders are Hard Rock and Rush Street Gaming.

Another factor that is said to be key to the allocation of the licence is that Bally is close to agreeing labour conditions.

A decision is expected this week on the bids for the licence. In the case of Bally, a $1.74bn building is proposed, sited at the Tribune Publishing Plant, which would include 3,400 slots, 173 tables, a theatre and a 500-room hotel.
