Pritzker Joins Officials in Groundbreaking of New Walker’s Bluff Resort and Casino

CARTERVILLE – Governor JB Pritzker Wednesday joined elected officials, stakeholders, and labor leaders to break ground on the new Walker’s Bluff Resort and Casino in Carterville.

Made possible after the Illinois Gaming Board’s June 9, 2021 determination that Walker’s Bluff is preliminarily suitable for licensure, the new resort is slated to include a 116-room hotel along with a gaming floor, event center, and multiple restaurants, among other attractions.

With the expansion of gaming, officials said the industry is now poised to bring in hundreds of millions of dollars in new state revenues, funding critical vertical infrastructure projects in communities across the state.
