Full House Resorts (NASDAQ: FLL) today submitted an Owners Gaming License Application to the Illinois Gaming Board (“IGB”) to develop and operate American Place, a casino and entertainment destination in Waukegan, Illinois.  In its first phase, American Place would include a world-class casino with a state-of-the-art sports book; a premium boutique hotel comprised of twenty luxurious villas, each ranging from 1,500 to 2,500 square feet with full butler service; a 1,500-seat live entertainment venue; a gourmet restaurant that will rival the finest restaurants in Chicago; additional eateries and bars; and other amenities that will attract gaming and non-gaming patrons from throughout Chicagoland and beyond.  A second phase of American Place is expected to include a four-star hotel with 150 rooms, dining venues, entertainment options, and other amenities.

The proposed site is the Fountain Square shopping area, near the intersection of Illinois Route 120 and U.S. Route 41 in Waukegan.  If awarded the license by the IGB, Full House would also develop and operate a temporary casino on that site while American Place is being constructed, allowing the State of Illinois and the City of Waukegan to begin benefiting from its significant job creation and tax revenue generation during the construction process.

American Place was one of the three proposals certified by the Waukegan City Council at its October 17th special meeting.  At that meeting, Waukegan Aldermen heard a presentation from the city’s consultant, which ranked American Place the top proposal amongst the various submissions.

“We thank Waukegan Mayor Sam Cunningham and the Waukegan City Council for advancing our proposal to the Illinois Gaming Board,” said Daniel R. Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Full House Resorts. “We look forward to presenting our plans to the IGB and getting the opportunity to develop a first-class gaming facility that will bring jobs and revenues to the City of Waukegan and the State of Illinois.”
