Making Memories at the Isle®
In June, we kicked off the summer with some exciting changes here at the Isle and a contest called #IsleMissYou. From May 18 to June 6, guests were invited to share their best memories from their time at Isle Casino Hotel® Bettendorf. One lucky winner got the chance to see Wynonna and the Big Noise live with a friend; plus they received $100 in dining credit and $223 in FanPlay®!
We read through many touching memories and it was difficult to choose just one winner. We’re sharing a few of our favorite guest entries, and although they didn’t win the prize, we feel honored to be a place that’s synonymous with laughter, excitement and fun for so many loyal patrons.
“I surprised my son and brought him to the Isle shortly after he turned 21 three years ago. We stayed there for two days and also went to the John Deere® Classic golf tournament because we both love golfing. We had such a great time together and he even won a little money.
"We have continued that weekend tradition as a father and son outing ever since, and we hope to continue to do that as long as we can. We hope to someday turn it into a father/son and grandson or granddaughter weekend. You make it so convenient, since the shuttle for the tourney comes to your parking lot. I thank you for being a part of this experience and hope to continue it in the future.”
“While we've had so many wonderful experiences at the Isle, there is one that sticks out. After another fabulous dinner at Farraddays®, we had tickets for the Jo Dee Messina concert. Jo Dee was one of my favorite country artists and I never thought I would get the chance to see her live. She was battling a cold but still gave her all and left every member of the audience satisfied. I was able to cross an item off my bucket list, all thanks to the Isle!” -
“One year, my husband and I were playing in the high-limit area. I absolutely love that machine. It was a $5 slot. It was late at night and I won $6,000. Three months later, we asked our gambling friends from Indiana to join us at the Isle. We had so much fun, great food and wonderful accommodation. Once again, I returned to the high limit area and played my favorite machine, Pinball. Around midnight, I once again hit $6,000. Trust me, I could have fainted but instead I let out shrieks of joy!
"I wanted to update our kitchen but my husband's company downsized and he lost his directorship, but I had enough to get all new stainless steel appliances. I felt so blessed and very grateful! The Isle holds so many good times and bad times but we were always grateful for the wonderful memories we took home.”
The Isle is a special place for people from near and far, and more memories are begging to be made at the new land-based Isle! With $60 million in upgrades and new amenities, you’re in for an experience like never before!
Although we’ve moved just 223 feet, the difference is huge. We are proud to offer three new restaurants with farm-to-table fare and 35,000 feet of new and innovative play. Find your lucky machine among our 975 red-hot slots and rest your head in one of our 509 comfortable rooms. That’s right, our little move is kind of a big deal!
