Walker's Bluff Casino Resort

Under the Rebuild Illinois Law enacted in June 2019 a new casino license is allocated for the Resort at Walker's Bluff in Williamson County, Illinois.

Walker's Bluff vineyard began in 2008 as an upscale steak & seafood restaurant with entertainment, a wine cave and general store.

In June 2019 Illinois enacted legislation to greatly expand gambling in the state for the purpose of economic growth. Within the legislation was the authorization to build new casinos in six different cities. One of those new casinos was designated for Walker's Bluff in Carterville, Illinois.

On Oct 18, 2019 the Williamson County Board approved the Walker's Bluff casino plan for submission to the Illinois Gaming Board. The gaming board will make the final decision on issuance of a casino license.

If the casino is approved, Walker's Bluff will transform into a new destination resort named 'The Resort at Walker's Bluff'.

The Illinois Gaming Board granted the Walker's Bluff project a "preliminary suitability" status in June 2021, which is a preliminary license to proceed. See story

Walker's Bluff Casino Resort granted 'preliminary license'

June 13, 2021

Walker's Bluff owner Cynde Bunch announced this week, "We were granted a 'preliminary license to proceed'! Today we celebrate. Tomorrow at daylight we ride through a new set of hoops."

The Illinois Gaming Board has given the Walker Bluff casino project a "preliminary suitability" status, which is effectively a green light to start construction on the casino resort. The board action is not a final license but rather a major step in the long licensing process.
