Illinois Review

 

Illinois Casinos


On December 3, 1818, Illinois was admitted into the union, and was the 5th state to do so. Illinois is also the 5th most populated state in the U.S. The population, as reported in December 2000, was 12,419,293. The state covers an area of 57,918 square miles. Nicknamed the "Prairie State", Illinois is also a Great Lakes state.

With the introduction of the Alton Belle casino, Illinois became the second state to allow riverboat casinos. Argosy's Alton Belle Casino was the first riverboat casino in Illinois, opening its doors in 1991. Now there are 9 major casinos in Illinois, home to riverboat casinos. Taxed at the highest rate in the nation, Illinois casinos have been limited by the government's restrictions and the state is now at the maximum limit for gaming licenses. In spite of restrictions, Illinois casinos still provide guests with a wide range of gaming options to choose from.

All of the casinos offer great gaming from Slots to Blackjack and Roulette. All Illinois riverboat casinos welcome all guests over the age of 21. Illinois casinos offer much more than gambling - they offer a great vacation. They all offer special features that are worth taking a look at, like paddleboats and barges.  Most casinos also make available a great on site dining experience.
