History

In June 2002, the Illinois House of Representatives gives Jumer’s Casino Rock Island permission to move away from downtown Rock Island to a site near the intersection of Interstate 280 and Illinois 92. In October 2007, Jumer’s Casino Rock Island broke ground on a $151 million land-based casino, hotel and banquet center, and on December 1, 2008, Jumer’s opened its new Las Vegas-style casino and hotel in southwest Rock Island. The 43,000-square-foot casino has more than 1,100 slots and 24 table games as well as a live poker room and a high-limit slots area. The complex includes a 205-room hotel with 11 luxury suites, an event center, a nightclub and four restaurants. DJ’s Steakhouse is named after the company’s founder, D. James Jumer.

The 2011 Best of Gaming results were published in the magazine’s August edition. Jumer’s was voted best in 11 separate categories for the Northern Illinois region.
