Chicago Casinos Guide

Chicago's Newest Casino - the Rivers CasinoInfo & Map Locations of Chicago's Top Casinos
Riverboat casinos first came to the Chicago area in 1992, starting in Joliet and followed shortly thereafter in Elgin and Aurora. Today there are 9 casinos within 60 miles of Chicago's Loop, in Illinois and at the southern tip of Lake Michigan in Indiana. Virtually all of the casinos offer a variety of slot machines, table games and poker, as well as dining options usually consisting of a buffet, casual restaurants and often a fine dining restaurant. While some of the casinos are good day-trip destinations, several of the casinos are part of a hotel complex offering accommodations, recreation, fitness centers, spas and more; you may wish to plan a weekend getaway. Some of the casinos also feature live entertainment. Some are open 24 hours a day, others close for a couple hours in the morning. See our Map of Chicago's Casinos.

NOTE: Casino patrons must be 21. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, crisis counseling and referral services can be accessed by calling 1-800-GAMBLER (1-800-426-2537).
