Welcome to the future home of Walker's Bluff Casino Resort®

The soft rolling hills, fertile acreage and a heritage steeped in memories propelled the creation of Walker's Bluff in 2008. Acquiring land that had been in Cynde Bunch's family since 1934 was the first step toward what would become Southern Illinois' premier dining and entertainment venue. Elite Casino Resorts, LLC looks to become a part of this rich heritage by offering a first class casino resort that will enhance the exceptional complex that already exists at Walker's Bluff.
