Isle of Capri Proposes New Casino

- May 19, 2015 By Samantha A. -

New casino plans are in the works.

In the first week of May discussions occurred regarding whether or not to build a new casino located near the Isle of Capri. The estimated costs are somewhere between $55 and $60 million, this announcement deemed its very own ceremony that citizens attended in the courtyard of the casino. The original riverboat casino in Iowa opened its doors in 2000. Residents are anxious for the new casinos to open,  perhaps there will be something else to do around the area.
There are plans to make a brand new gaming floor that will be an astounding 35,000 square feet, surely enough to show off some serious machines and larger tables. The casino will be located square in between the Isle’s mountainous hotel towers in the center of the courtyard. The project has no completion date, but authorities believe it will completed within 12-14 months. There has actually been talks of renovating the hotels and preparing for new traffic and customers from the installation of new casinos.  At least $8.5 million in renovations are set aside for this endeavor.
The ISLE president states that this will most likely be a small town casino, hosting a Farmer’s Pick Buffet and a Lone Pick Bar. Cozy, perhaps, but this does not mean residents and tourists will not be attracted to the new areas. It is believed that these casinos will be very successful and add a lot of activity to the area. A prominent council member expresses that he believes every new casino will prove to be successful, stating: “They’ve done that for a number of years,” Alderman Mohr said. “I think the Bettendorf boat going land-based will help draw more people from outside of our region. Perhaps these casinos will drive sales around the areas restaurants and bring more revenue to the area.
The powers that be have different ideas to drive interest for the casinos, some include more extravagant courtyard parties, others include press releases to inform the area. Whatever the case, the new casinos should be erected within the next few years, only time will tell how the residents react.
