On Monday, October 28, the Hard Rock team, joined by Mayor McNamara, the Nielsen family and other city officials, submitted our proposal to the Illinois Gaming Board. The Gaming Board has up to 12 months to review proposals and issue licenses. We will continue to keep this site updated with the latest information.

The Rockford City Council voted to certify the Hard Rock Casino as the city's choice for a new casino!
The Hard Rock Casino Rockford, located at the intersection of State Street and I-90, will feature 64,000 feet of gaming space, a variety of dining options, and a Hard Rock Live entertainment venue. The project will generate over 1,000 part-time and full-time jobs once in operation, and a minimum annual payment of $7 million to the City of Rockford in gaming revenue.
Many thanks to the Rockford community for all your support and enthusiasm.
Now we must complete the Illinois Gaming Board approval process
and will keep this site updated on new developments.
