Hollywood Casino Aurora Revenue Shrinks Again

Revenue at Hollywood Casino in Aurora continues to shrink, according to new information released by the Illinois Gaming Board.

Gross receipts went from $181.2 million in 2010 to $173.2 million in 2011, a drop of $8 million.

Aurora gets $10.5 million and the State of Illinois gets $48.89 million.

The new casino in Des Plaines had $177 million in revenue in 2011.

Elgin's Grand Victoria had $256 million in revenue and Joliet's Harrah's Casino had $223 million, with both having decreases.

Overall, mostly due to Des Plaines, statewide gross receipts increased by $103 million to almost $1.5 billion, generating about $400 million for the state in taxes.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Gov. Pat Quinn both support a casino for Chicago, which would further negatively impact Aurora.

The money was to go for the revitalization of river town commercial districts.

How do you like the Aurora downtown so far?

We have received about 200 million dollars so far. Where did it go?
