Illinois casino revenues in September were the second highest since 2014 for the state. For September, the state’s casinos had $132.13 million in total adjusted gross receipts, an increase of 6.2% over August.
There are no Illinois online casinos.
This year, September’s financial performance was second only to July 2023, which had about $133.26 million in revenue – and that figure stands as the highest since 2014.
Addition of Bally’s Boosts Figures
Revenues in September were buoyed by the addition of a 15th casino, Bally’s temporary casino in Chicago, which added about $6.68 million to the statewide monthly adjusted gross receipts. The temporary facility, which opened its doors on Sept. 9, will eventually be replaced by a permanent $1.7 billion casino-hotel that is expected to open in 2026.
For September, the state share of casino taxes was $32.68 million, and the local share was about $7.93 million.
