On Monday, the Illinois Gaming Board will decide what site in Cook County could possibly be the next location for a casino. The current front-runner: Rosemont, which appeared to have the best bid this week for the proposed riverboat casino. Rosemont will have to best at least two other cities: Waukegan and Des Plaines, which also put in competitive bids in a gambling license auction that ended early Thursday morning.
