Full House Resorts is planning a temporary casino in Waukegan, Illinois, having been found “preliminarily suitable” by the state gaming board in December. As part of the plan, the company has named John Ferrucci as senior vice president and chief operating officer to oversee its “Temporary at American Place.”
Ferrucci will continue serving as general manager of the Silver Slipper Casino in Mississippi and overseeing operations at other Full House venues, according to the company.
Plans for American Place include a “20-guest room mansion” and a casino with more than 1,600 slot machines, 100 table games and a retail sportsbook along with fine dining options.
Full House will purchase 10 acres of property adjoining the 30 acres it will lease from Waukegan for the permanent casino. For the temporary venue, Full House will purchase a Sprung tent structure that has an area of more than one football field and will feature approximately 1,000 slots and 50 table games along with three dining options and a bar.
