Potential for the Village of Arlington Heights
Permitting electronic gaming at Arlington Park would generate enormous economic benefits for the local community by creating new jobs, saving existing jobs, producing new tax revenue for local services, and bolstering existing tax revenue for local services.
Based on an estimated 1,200 gaming machines with each producing $300 net win per day, the expanded gaming operation at Arlington Park would produce $131.4 million in adjusted gross revenue annually. That means $27.7 million in state gaming taxes, and $3.9 million of that would flow to the Village of Arlington Heights.
Additionally, the expanded operation would produce $3.9 million in admission taxes, and $1.3 million of that would flow to the Village of Arlington Heights.
The Village of Arlington Heights therefore would enjoy $5.2 million in additional, annual estimated tax revenue growth.
