MARQUETTE, IOWA — The Queen Casino & Entertainment, which acquired Casino Queen Marquette in 2017, has received permission from the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission to move the riverboat casino to land. The casino is located at 100 Anti Monopoly St., along the banks of the Mississippi River in Marquette. The commission approved the request during a hearing on Thursday, Jan. 26.
The Queen Casino & Entertainment plans to move the 17,000-square-foot gambling floor ashore, including more than 400 slot machines, two blackjack tables and several other table games. As part of the remodel, the property will receive an additional 12,000 square feet to its current dockside building; an enhanced single-level gaming floor easily accessible from the main entrance with the latest in gaming technology; and new dining outposts, including a dedicated sports bar.
