In 2008, Kane County received about $8 million to use for internal programs, about $1 million of which was available for projects benefiting the county's educational, environmental, and economic needs.

Grants for these projects are recommended by Kane County's riverboat committee, but both the executive committee and the county board must approve the funds before they can be distributed.

In addition to the Kane County Board and the Grand Victoria Foundation, The city of Elgin receives its own portion of the Grand Victoria's revenue.

Casino profits led to the removal of the $25 vehicle license fee as well as a yearly property tax rebate for senior citizens.

According to the Daily Herald, the Grand Victoria Casino Elgin generates more revenue than any other Illinois casino.

In 2007, the casino took in $437 million, a rise of 13% since 2000.

This increase in revenue came as a result of tightening slot machines, and occurred despite a 32% drop in attendance between 20.

As Illinois Gaming Board reports illustrate, the 2008-2009 economic recession has led to an overall decrease in revenue among Illinois casinos, particularly the Grand Victoria.

The casino's revenue of $25 million for the month of February, 2009 was down 9.9% from the previous year and down 24% from 2007.

In an attempt to make up for lost revenue, the Grand Victoria and other Illinois riverboat casinos are petitioning for permission to distribute free alcoholic beverages.

Supporters of a proposed bill say that the current law is unclear, while opposing groups cite increased gambling addiction as a likely consequence if free alcohol distribution is legalized.
