Wind Creek Advances to Second-Stage Negotiations for South Suburban Casino License

Statement Attributable to President and CEO Jay Dorris

“Wind Creek Illinois is excited to have been selected by the Illinois Gaming Board to advance to the next stage of negotiations for the south suburban casino license.

Wind Creek’s proposed casino and development in East Hazel Crest and Homewood is projected to draw more revenue than its competitor and would create around 800 full-time equivalent jobs in the Southland, in addition to creating a public benefit fund to provide grants for education and healthcare to benefit the region. This development promises to be the best in and for the entire Southland region – with job creation, economic and community investment, sustained operational excellence, and a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion in all phases of construction and operation.

We look forward to continued negotiations with the Illinois Gaming Board over the coming months.”
