CHICAGO (WIFR) -- The largest casino in the world could come to Chicago. but it would be at the expense of four other casino's including one planned for Rockford.

Rockford Mayor Larry Morrissey was among those testifying at a hearing in Chicago on Wednesday debating on two proposal for additional gaming in Illinois.

One proposal is similar to the ones that passed twice in the legislature but never got the governor's signature. That would include casino's in Chicago, Rockford and three other Illinois cities.

A second idea would be to build one mega casino in Chicago and have the revenues from that split fifty-fifty between the state and the city.
