Isle of Capri Bettendorf land-based casino opens today

After years of floating on Mississippi River, the gaming establishment was being moved to land and it is ready for its launch.

US.- Isle of Capri Bettendorf casino is ready for its scheduled Friday launch on 24th of June after years of floating on Mississippi River. Now the gaming establishment is on the site where a former courtyard used to exist.

According to casino officials, the size of the venue is almost the same as the size of the riverboat venue. The new casino will offer 1,000 slot machines and 19 table games. This project has cost Isle of Capri a US$60 million investment, but now, in addition to the improved gaming floor, customers of the Bettendorf complex will also get a chance to enjoy in a new bar, restaurants and a number of other facilities. In addition two hotel towers provide a total of 514 hotel rooms.

Nancy Ballenger, the casino’s Vice President and General Manager, revealed that final testing was taking place and confirmed that the venue was ready for its grand opening scheduled for 10:00 AM, today. Ballenger outlined that visitor’s expectations change over time and that operators must adapt their offer to their customers’ needs. She concluded that moving the casino to land would result in a “very convenient experience” for their patrons.
