A special meeting is scheduled to take place on September 19th to discuss the operating hours of casinos.

The state's casinos would like to operate 24 hours daily. As of now, all casinos may only be open for 22 hours a day.

Many of the state's casinos believe that the extra 2 hours of operation could help their business. Currently the gaming revenue is down. If the casinos were allowed to be open 24 hours, it could attract  more gamblers. More gaming revenues would also help the state.

Truck stops are allowed to offer electronic gaming 24 hours daily. Casino operators do not believe there should be a difference in the law when it comes to the casinos.

However, groups opposed to the increased gaming hours believe that it will take advantage of people that are tired and cannot make good judgment. Anti gaming groups suggest the solution should be to end 24 hour gaming at truck stops instead.

Return to Illinois Casinos.
