So far, Danville has only received two proposals for a casino, and those two did not meet the criteria the city requires.

The Illinois General Assembly passed legislation including a casino in Danville as part of a massive expansion of gaming in the state.

A referendum for a Vigo County casino is set to appear on the ballot in the November election.
