I decided I was not going to get scalped by this place and drove all the way home to Chicago at 1am. I told them they were driving me out the door and they did not seem to care, so I left. Jumers claims to be like Vegas Since the pictures on their website looked good, we decided to make the trip from the Chicago area with several groups of friends and give this casino a try on a Saturday evening.
I am guessing this place is nice for the good people of the Quad Cities, but this place wouldn't even fly in the suburbs of Reno. If you compare to the other casinos in the Quad Cities area, it is an improvement, but that is not saying much! The casino is small, quiet, lacks any sort of energy and they don't have many table games.
We had a group of 6 and asked to get a table open and they declined. The people who come to this casino to stay and gamble are not exactly the Quad Cities finest. Some are down right scary.
Trying to be as nice as I can here They claim to have a club called The Edge. This place is not much bigger then my bedroom and had one very slow bartender One of the guys in the band that night had on overalls and the other was wearing a flannel.
They were singing country music either! The staff is not the greatest either. Gave up trying to get a cup of coffee at the snack counter after the person working there was chatting in the kitchen for 10 minutes. The food was decent, but my wife found an egg shell in her omelet. The hotel rooms are clean, but small and very, very average. Very uncomfortable mattresses as well. The best thing I can say about this place is that is is not near my house and the drinks were cheap. Jumers Casino is so much better than gambling on a boat.
It's clean, spacious, and a taste of Vegas in your backyard. We've stayed at Jumer's three times now, as it's on the route when we visit family. We were floored the first time we walked in - it had just opened and everything was bright, clean, spacious and elegantly decorated.
Three years later, it's still the same. The casino is smoke-free, which we appreciate. The slots aren't bad. Our son played the tables and said the dealers are the friendliest he has encountered.
The rooms are spectacular. Large, contemporary, very upscale. Everything about the hotel is a notch above. It's on the pricey side - both rooms and food. Also, the hotel part is quite a jaunt from the casino, though it's all the same building.

The casino will have greeted its 2 millionth guest by month's end, after only 20 months in business. But there are caution flags flying. Most are coming from Illinois' Mississippi River neighbor, Iowa, where riverboat gambling began five months before the first Illinois boat was opened.
Illinois law has no such limits. As a result, observers said, a gambling boat abandoned Dubuque, Iowa, in April for Missouri. In July, casino boats left Bettendorf and Ft. Madison, Iowa, to move to Mississippi. Now Edward Ellers, of Philadelphia, owner of The President, docked in Davenport, has suggested strongly that it may be replaced with something smaller, or removed altogether, unless Iowa changes its law.
She said several professional surveys had indicated that a majority of the Iowa public supports an increase in the wagering limits but would not agree to establishing land-based casinos or the expansion of gaming in general.
Some Iowa lawmakers want concessions for dog- and horse-racing interests, for example, in exchange for approval of riverboat changes, she said. Others are concerned about the effect of Indian-run casinos and high-stakes bingo operations. And we have to look at gaming as a catalyst, not as a panacea, for our economic problems. Meantime, only three cities in Iowa now offer casino boat gambling-Davenport, Sioux City and Clinton-compared with five cities originally.
In Illinois, where eight cities soon to be nine share in the Midwest's newly discovered pastime, the original legislation authorized a total of 10 riverboat casino licenses.
