The casino includes approximately 1,000 slot machines, 19 table games, and two restaurants including Farmer's Pick Buffet and Keller's Express,Lone Wolf Bar is located on the gaming floor. An additional restaurant, Keller's American Grill will open later this year.

"Today we reveal a new single-level casino, two new restaurants, with a third to open soon, a grand new entrance, and a consolidated hotel lobby located between our two hotel towers.
 
"We thank our general contractor, architect, and all of the local tradespeople for sharing their expertise with us. The employees here at Bettendorf are dedicated to providing first class customer service and they are excited to share our new experience with everyone."
