MILWAUKEE (AP) – The competition for gamblers’ dollars is getting tougher as one Wisconsin tribe seeks to block another from building a casino between Milwaukee and Chicago.  The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1hd4AAD ) the Midwest gambling market has changed dramatically over the past couple of decades. There are now 36 casinos in Wisconsin and Illinois; 9,000 slot machines in Illinois taverns, truck stops and similar venues; and untold illegal slots in Wisconsin bars.  Such concerns are cited by the Potawatomi tribe as it spends millions to block the Menominee tribe from opening an $808 million casino complex in Kenosha.    The Potawatomi fear a casino between Chicago and Milwaukee would siphon many of its Illinois customers. The Potawatomi Bingo Casino in Milwaukee draws about 35 percent of its customers from the Chicago area.
