CHICAGO (CBS) -- The Illinois Gaming Board will meet in Chicago Thursday to vote on a license for a temporary Bally's Casino in the city.
It's the first step toward a new, permanent casino in the River West neighborhood.
The make-shift location would be at the Medinah Temple on Ohio Street in River North.
Back in September, we reported on a traffic study that found the area will be able to handle the increase in traffic caused by the temporary gaming operations.
A newly constructed Bally's Casino is set to open in River West sometime in 2026.
