Thank you for visiting. The RFI submission deadline has now passed. We are grateful for the many high-quality submissions we have received, and we are excited for the chance to incorporate this thoughtful feedback into our overarching framework for the development of a Chicago casino. 

The City received 11 responses from some of the leading operators, developers and consultants including: Chicago Neighborhood Initiative, Christiansen Capital Advisors, Development Management Associates (DMA), DL3 Realty, Hard Rock International, JDL, MGM Resorts International, MGM Growth Properties, R2 Companies, Rush Street and Related Midwest, and Wynn Resorts. In the link below we have provided a detailed summary of the RFI responses received by the City. Any new information will be posted here as available. We look forward to continuing to work towards this critical effort to shore up our city’s police and fire pension funds, as well as generating infrastructure funding and creating new jobs all across Illinois. 

Please keep in mind this RFI was released solely as the first step in the process of bringing a world class casino to Chicago and responding was not a condition to participating in any competitive process for the selection of a casino operator and/or developer. Further, the responses received will not be deemed an expression of interest in participating in any such competitive selection process. The City’s RFI and RFI Supplement will remain available at the links below.
