Blue Chip took the number one spots in the Chicagoland area for Best Overall Gaming Resort, Best Hotel, Best Comps/Free Play, Best Promotions, Best Dealers, Best Poker Tournaments, Best Slot Tournaments, Casino Where You Feel Luckiest, Best Reel Slots, Best Buffet (Options Buffet), Best Coffee Shop (Nelson’s Deli) and Best Concerts. Additionally, Blue Chip Casino & Hotel took second place awards among Chicagoland casinos for Best Suites, Best Bar/Lounge (Rocks), Best Rooms and Best Players Club.
Casino Player Magazine noted that all winning properties have “great hotel rooms, a first-rate casino with all of your favorite games; terrific customer service and the amenities we expect from a modern resort destination.” According to the magazine, casinos considered for the Best Dealer Award must also have “dealers who engage the guests, employ good humor and friendliness to take some of the sting off losses, and are helpful to novices, suggesting good strategy moves and being polite, no matter what”.
“We’re delighted the readers of Casino Player Magazine have honored Blue Chip Casino Hotel and Spa with so many top awards, and particularly because they have recognized the quality of the entire Blue Chip experience, including the casino, the hotels, dining and entertainment venues, and our friendly team members,” says Ted Bogich, Vice President and General Manager.
