Industry Experts Affirm Wind Creek Application Will Generate Most Revenue for the State, South Suburban Region

Statement Attributable to Brent Pinkston, EVP Chief Operating Officer, Wind Creek Hospitality

“Wind Creek Illinois was pleased to again present to the Illinois Gaming Board this morning, sharing additional information to support our application – which we believe offers the best location in and for the south suburbs.

In the gaming industry, there are three viable research companies – The Innovation Group, Global Market Advisors and Spectrum Gaming Group. In our application and initial presentation to the Illinois Gaming Board, we provided data from Innovation and Global confirming that our site presented the best location in the Southland and would produce $20 million more in gaming revenue per year than Matteson. This week, Spectrum validated those findings.

With strong support from diverse mayors and community leaders through the south suburbs and verifiable evidence that Wind Creek will produce over $140 million more tax revenue than the Matteson site over 20 years for the State of Illinois and the south suburban townships, we are hopeful and confident that the Illinois Gaming Board will select our proposal for a casino/hotel entertainment complex in East Hazel Crest and Homewood.”
