If you were betting on Des Plaines, you're a winner.
And so is Des Plaines after the Illinois Gaming Board voted 3-1 to award the state's unused casino license to Midwest Gaming & Entertainment.
The vote at a meeting in Chicago on Monday will allow Midwest Gaming to opening a gambling operation in the Chicago suburb of Des Plaines.
The state's 10th casino license has been languishing in legal limbo for years.
Trilliant's bid was the highest with an upfront licensing fee of $435 million, followed by Waukegan Gaming at $225 million and Midwest Gaming at $100 million.
