(Waukegan, IL) Another potential Waukegan casino operator has withdrawn from consideration. Midwest Gaming…which included Churchill Downs, has dropped it’s bid, leaving only two possible bids…Full House Resorts and Northpoint Casino. The Illinois Gaming Board has yet to decide which is the best option, a decision that met multiple delays, including the Coronavirus pandemic. Even when the final decision is made on who will run the Waukegan gaming establishment…it will likely be quite awhile until it’s in operation.
