(Waukegan, IL)  With a permanent Waukegan casino still a little ways off, gambling could start in the city as soon as July. Full House Resorts says they are finalizing plans to build a temporary 65,000 square foot facility, which they hope to open in July. Once plans are approved for the temporary facility, Full House officials say they will begin to immediately start hiring workers. The permanent casino, which will be known as “American Place” isn’t expected to be completed for at least 2 years.
