Rock Island, Illinois has seen the opening of a $150 million casino, described as stunning by its marketing manager. The 42,500 feet casino is considered multi use, housing a hotel, four restaurants, and a night club, along with twenty four table games and six live poker tables.

Jumer’s Casino took a great deal of planning over a number of years, and building took sixteen months to complete. In doing so it provided employment for four hundred construction workers.

The casino replaces the Casino Rock Island riverboat, that had aged over its sixteen years of service.
