WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Ill. (KFVS) - Walker’s Bluff announced updates on its proposed facility upgrades.

The proposed permanent casino resort will feature more than 650 slot machines, 20 table games, ELITE Sportsbook, a 116-room hotel, pool, spa, a retail shop, show lounge, event center and restaurants.

Elite Casino Resorts announced consolidation of its Walker’s Bluff Casino Resort construction plans into a single construction phase.

It’s also looking for bids for the construction phase of the project.

Elite requested approval from the Illinois Gaming Board to move directly to the permanent facility.

“We are hopeful for a positive outcome that gives us the privilege to open a premier casino resort in Illinois,” said Dan Kehl, chief executive officer of Elite Casino Resorts. “The new proposed construction schedule allows us to open the casino, hotel, spa and all of our signature Elite amenities sooner, giving new customers a great first impression of the new Walker’s Bluff Casino Resort.”

A construction informational meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 23 at 1:30 p.m. at the Tasting Room at the current Walker’s Bluff facility. You can click here for more information.
