Our proposal provides the most generous package to the City that is intended to support local businesses and minority organizations while driving job creation and sustained economic opportunities for the Chicago Community.
Recurring annual payments of $2.0 million for City community programs and $2.0 million towards the City’s general fund.
We plan to leverage our 20+ million player database to attract visitors and drive Chicago's evolution to become a tourist destination.
Upon stabilized operations of the Bally’s Chicago, we expect that the Project will attract over 4.5 million visitors a year.
We estimate that Bally's Chicago will generate $21 billion in economic value for the Chicago community over a 8-year period.
Incentivizing Players and Guests to Support Local Businesses
A hallmark of the Bally's Chicago will be "Bally Rewards / Community Rewards" - a unique, interactive program that will incentivize players and guests to redeem the rewards they earn at local participating businesses. It is a win / win for Chicago small businesses and Bally's Chicago.
Working with local partners, we will solicit small businesses within the Chicago area to join this innovative program and will work with participating organizations to offer the best array of rewards.
Bally's has successfully implemented similar rewards programs in a number of cities across the U.S.
This program represents an innovative opportunity for the casino, it's players and local, participating businesses.
Bally’s Chicago was spreading holiday cheer by distributing over 600 turkeys in two communities where Bally’s seeks to build a new world-class entertainment casino resort. Black Men United (BMU) joined Bally’s at both events and distributed coats, PPE, small appliances, and other donated goods. BMU, a national community service organization, focuses on the restoration and rebuilding of Black communities across America under the leadership of Black men.
