July 2019
Danville City Council set up a steering committee comprised of city and business leaders to recommend qualified candidates as casino operators. The committee made its recommendations, and the council sent each referral a Solicitation for Proposal for the Danville casino project.

Seven candidates responded favorably with Intent to Reply. Their deadline for submitting a proposal was July 31. Only two proposals were received by that time so the deadline was extended to August 21.

November 2021
Danville Development LLC updated and resubmitted its application to the Illinois Gaming Board for the Danville casino to be named Golden Nugget Danville. The project is led by Wilmorite Construction of Rochester, NY, who secured the Golden Nugget branding for the casino, online sports wagering and a Landry's steakhouse.

March 2022
The Illinois Gaming Board approved the plan for Golden Nugget Danville and issued a Determination of Preliminary Suitability.
