    #FeelFree to Be You at Isle Casino Hotel® Bettendorf!

    Don’t peek! Bring a lucky charm. Wear your sweater inside out? We all have those little “things” we do to make us feel Lady Luck is closer by our side… but some places make you feel a little silly for being you! The Isle® Bettendorf… is not one of those places.

    Did you know that Isle of Capri Casinos®, Inc. started as a humble riverboat casino in Bettendorf, IA in 1991? From then until now, we’ve opened fourteen properties across the country, with locations from Florida to Colorado. Even though we’ve grown and moved beyond our hometown, we have never lost sight of our roots. We’re proud to be a place where you always feel welcome and never need to act like someone you’re not. No one here is snobby, exclusive, or pretentious – Isle Casino Hotel® Bettendorf is a place you can be completely yourself.

    “We don’t want our guests to feel like guests, we want them to feel right at home when they play with us,” says Stacy DeWalt, Chief Marketing Officer of Isle of Capri Casinos®, Inc. “The best compliment we hear is – ‘I feel like I belong here.’” And we guarantee you do belong here. How do we know? Because we know fun, we know friendly, and we know comfortable.

    There are some pretty interesting rituals that we see here on our casino floor, and we welcome all of them. DeWalt says, "The best part of my job is spending time with our employees and hearing about the fun times they are having with our customers.” Want to hear some of our favorite rituals over the years? Of course you do!

    • Bringing a Lucky Charm
    Charms are popularly thought to bring luck to the gaming table, and the best part is that the sky’s the limit when it comes to your options. We’ve seen lucky acorns, keys, dolls, special coins, and even a lucky lizard (plastic of course)!

    • Eyes Closed!
    We are happy these folks are sitting down, because taking a slot spin with your eyes closed can get pretty dangerous when you hear that jackpot ring!

    • Whistle While You Work
    We’ve heard a lot of gossip on the subject. While some players have a special little tune they hum while they play… others have assured us it’s unlucky! Mums the word!

    No matter what ritual you have, join in on the good times with staff and patrons alike at Isle Casino Hotel® Bettendorf. Everyone always has the same chance at winning… but sometimes a few little superstitions feel like they get you there more often.
