Island Resort & Casino wins awards in 23 categories


The Island Resort & Casino has once again earned a slew of Best of the Native Midwest rankings by Casino Player magazine, this time in 23 notable categories that span the areas of gaming, hotels, and resort amenities. The 2021 rankings have just been released and added to the list of winners this year was the island’s TwinSpires Sportsbook – ranking first in the best prop bets; second in the best overall bookmaker, the best sports betting promotions, the best betting options and the most user-friendly sports bookmakers.

“The Island Sportsbook in partnership with TwinSpires has been an overall success,” said Tony Mancilla, General Manager of Island Resort & Casino. “The kiosks are popular with our customers because they are in T.McC’s Sports Bar and are easy to use. The first year exceeded all of our projections for customer play and we continue to see it grow.

Other top spots awarded to the island include Drift Spa, Golf Course, Promotions, Dealers and Video Poker. The other second places were won by Hotel Staff, Live Poker and Bingo.

Third place wins recognized the island as a favorite casino resort for vacations with nods to the entire gaming complex, hotel, rooms, casino, club players and more. The $30 million expansion of the island, currently underway, will only add to the excitement for guests.

“The new addition to our hotel will bring our total rooms to 454, one of the largest hotels north of Milwaukee,” Mancilla said. “In addition, we added a 200-seat restaurant on the 12th floor of the expansion. This will add to the fine dining capability that our customers have come to expect when visiting. A new swimming pool with water park features has also been added for families with children. The extension is expected to open in December 2021.”
