Legislators in the state of Illinois are focused on building their gaming. Illinois has long been a supporter of gambling. All you have to do is look at the five huge gambling locations in the state right now.
They are in Rockford, Lake County, Chicago, Danville and southern Cook County. These five locations account for millions of consistent dollars coming into the state as a result of their aggressive and attractive natures.
The gambling centers all are premiere locations where any gambler can find a wide range of games to play. There are slots, poker tables, blackjack, lotteries, give-a-ways and other games to enjoy.
All you have to do is compare what games are today to what they were ten years ago and you easily can see the disparity.
Games have already become much better than they once were. For example, ten years ago you could go to a casino and see a few blackjack tables to enjoy. The tables most likely would be a mix of low- to high-wager games to accommodate a variety of players.
They attracted people, but not as many as casino operators wanted. Over the years, they have expanded their games to include not only the various single games, but also the tournament play that was missing.
Tournaments are highly popular right now and if you go to any well developed casino location you likely are going to see a huge array of those too. This is just one way that Illinois casinos have expanded. They have offered bigger and better payouts too.
In coming weeks Illinois Governor Bruce R and Mayor are meeting to go over a new gambling bill. The bill would open up the door to legalized gambling for players in the state.
It also would build on the already established games that are out there. This is the first step the state is actively making to maximize the amount of tax revenue dollars that are available.
They know that gambling is key to building new revenue and most legislators are behind this expansion. If it is passed, the bill will throw wide the door for truly making bigger dollars than they have ever at the hands of gambling.
