The article reports that a new casino in Kenosha, Wisconsin could cost Chicago-area casinos $60 million in revenue the first year, increasing the flow of Illinois gamblers to casinos across the state line. A recovery may be even further off if the Wisconsin Menominee tribe wins approval to build a 3,100-slot and 75-table casino in Kenosha. The Kenosha complex could clip revenue at the four suburban Chicago casinos by $60 million a year.
