Joliet bucking other casino towns on video gambling
(MCT) — Elgin just shot down the idea of citywide video gambling, not wanting to jeopardize the health of the casino that has brought millions of dollars to its budget. The casino towns of Des Plaines and Aurora also are shying away from the machines, according to state records.
The big exception is Joliet: Since the City Council voted in the spring to allow bars, restaurants, fraternal organizations and veterans groups to run video poker and blackjack, 37 establishments with Joliet addresses have sought state licenses to get the machines. That's the highest number by far of any Chicago-area community.
