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 in Walker's Bluff Casino Resort, to enhance the exceptional complex that already exists at Walker's Bluff.

Walker's Bluff Casino Resort will be constructed in phases upon receiving casino gaming license approval.

Project Description and Timeline for Walker's Bluff Casino Resort

Upon final approval of our casino license, Walker's Bluff Casino Resort intends to construct:

Temporary Casino: On the site where the permanent facility will be constructed, we will construct a temporary casino as expeditiously as possible. This facility is planned to include 400 slots machines, 8 table games and a food and beverage outlet. It is anticipated that the temporary casino will open 9 months after license approval.

Phase 1 Casino Resort: Construction will begin approximately 9 months after the temporary casino begins operations. The Phase 1 Casino Resort is anticipated to open 24 months after the temporary opening and it will include 250 additional slot machines, 6 additional table games, 100 hotel rooms, a spa, a concert lounge, and additional food outlets.

Event Center: Once Phase 1 Casino Resort is operational, the Temporary Casino will be converted into an Event Center for the casino resort. The Event Center will accommodate up to 1,500 attendees for concerts and can be set up in various configurations for banquets, meetings and other events.

Phase 2: Recreational water facilities, additional hotel and other amenities TBD

Timelines and scope of project may vary depending upon season of license approval and other circumstances.
