DANVILLE — Crowds were ready for the day many had been waiting decades for; a casino opened in Danville during the weekend. The Illinois Gaming Board issued Golden Nugget Danville Casino a temporary operating permit for it to open to the public. The permit allows the casino to open in the interim prior to the IGB approving the casino's permanent license. According to a Saturday morning press release issued by the casino, the Golden Nugget Danville Casino was to open at 4 p.m. the same day. Holiday weekend hours also were announced, with the casino being closed on Tuesday.
