The Illinois Gaming Board has issued Golden Nugget Danville Casino with a temporary operating licence, allowing it to open to the public on May 27 on the city’s east side.
The Danville Golden Nugget casino gaming floor features almost 500 slot machines. The slot mix has traditional slots and the latest video technology. There are favorite table games with 14 Las Vegas style table games including Mini-Baccarat, Blackjack, 3-Card Poker, Craps, Mississippi Stud, Roulette and Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em. The Sportsbook will open soon to test your luck and get in on the live action. There will be plenty of food and drinks too. In addition to the Sports bar, the casino is home to the legendary Saltgrass Steakhouse. Saltgrass Steakhouse temporary hours are daily 4 p.m.-9 p.m.
From May 31, temporary casino hours are 4 p.m. to midnight daily except for Sundays and Tuesdays. The hours on Sunday are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Golden Nugget Danville will be closed on Tuesdays.
Danville Development President Jimmy Wilmot said: “We are excited to take the next big step in the process, and open our casino to the over 21 public. We are incredibly thankful of the hard work and support of the Danville community, greater Vermilion County, and the state of Illinois, especially the efforts of the Illinois Gaming Board. Without all these agencies and their representatives’ efforts we wouldn’t be here today.”
The Golden Nugget Danville Casino is still looking to fill several positions such as administrative assistants, slot attendants, cooks/chefs, security officers, wait staff, EVS attendant (casino housekeeping), cage cashiers, maintenance techs, bartenders and more.
