[ARCHIVED] Request for Qualifications and Proposals - Casino Development & Operator

Request for Qualifications and Proposals - Casino Development & Operator

The City of Waukegan invites qualified Project Teams to submit proposals through the issuance of this Request for Qualifications and Proposals for the development of a successful casino and associated amenities in accordance with the Illinois Gaming Act. The Act was recently amended to allow for a license to be issued to a Riverboat Casino within the corporate limits of the City of Waukegan. The Act further provides for only a 120-day window from the time of the Governor’s signature on the legislation for developers to submit a full application to the Illinois Gaming Board after the City issues a letter of support and has an agreement with a Project Team. Given these requirements, the City seeks to maximize the value of the gaming license and assure long-term viability of the casino while moving quickly through the statutory vetting process.

The official document can be downloaded from the City of Waukegan’s website at https://www.waukeganil.gov/bids.aspx. Inquiries and questions from qualified project teams related to this opportunity should be directed to Casino@waukeganIL.gov.
