Hard Rock Casino Hard Rockford continues to break records. Located on Illinois’ Bell School Road, the makeshift casino ended its second and final year of operation with record profits in December.
It’s been a great year for Hard Rock Casino Rockford:
Hard Rock Casino Geno Ifrate, the president of Rockford, is satisfied with last year’s results and claims that it has been a milestone for the casino. One of the most important things is the Hard Rock Open Act. iGreat is happy about opening a permanent casino, but as he said, saying goodbye to a temporary casino will be bittersweet. As the Rockford Register Star reported, he said, “The new year will be exciting with the opening of a big joint, but it will also be sad to see the opening law getting close.”
Rockford Casino made more than $69 million in 2023. Compared to 2022, when revenue was $54.8 million, it posted a 26% increase. On top of that, Illinois Gaming Board announced a new monthly record achieved in December, when revenue was $6.5 million.
In April 2023, table games were introduced to visitors to the casino, which brought the number of employees to over 350. Early in the table game journey, the casino had six live table games – four blackjack tables, one three-card poker table, and one Ultimate Texas Hold ‘M table. Mississippi studs, roulette, and mini baccarat tables were added shortly thereafter, with the most recent additions being craft tables.
The makeshift casino opened in November 2021, and has recently crossed the milestone of a million guests from 50 states, the District of Columbia, and seven other countries. In 2023, guests are up 32% compared to 2022.
Coming to Sports Betting:
However, one of the 2023 plans didn’t go through. The company had planned to launch a sportsbook in Rockford, but it’s been taking longer than expected, so it’s expected to be released in early 2024 after Illinois Gaming Board issues a license.
The permanent casino resort is set for completion in the summer of 2024. The casino will be deployed across 180,000 square feet and will be located on East State Street at Interstate 90 exit.
The casino is expected to hire about 400 new employees. The new 65.000-square-foot casino has 1.300 slot machines, advanced sports books, and 44 table games, allowing visitors to enjoy blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and craps and other table games. The casino will also have a poker room. In addition, visitors can enjoy a hard rock cafe and a hard rock live event center with 23.500 square feet, or 1.600 seats for live concerts, as a conference space. 바다이야기
