ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Are you ready to rock a Rockford casino?
Rick Nielsen and Jim Allen, the chairman and CEO of Hard Rock International will be at the former Clock Tower Resort on Tuesday. It’s expected they will announce their proposal to build a Hard Rock Casino.
Despite the upcoming announcement, the city of Rockford still anticipates receiving several proposals and locations for a casino.
This comes after Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a gaming bill into law earlier this year, paving the way for Rockford to have a casino.
