Jumer’s Casino & Hotel in Rock Island has received 16 awards from Casino Player Magazine, including best hotel and best players club.
The magazine annually conducts a Best of Gaming poll of its readers. Readers voted Jumer’s first place in four categories for the Chicagoland region, which includes all Illinois casinos and four in Indiana.
Jumer’s has won best hotel five out of the past six years. Other first-place awards were: best rooms, best pool and best players club.
It received nine second-place awards: best overall gaming resort, best hotel staff, best suite, favorite casino resort to vacation, best table game tournaments, best reel slots, best blackjack, best craps and best live poker.
“We are extremely thankful to the readers of Casino Player Magazine for voting Jumer’s in so many categories, given the number of casinos to choose from for this poll,” said Mark Bennett, the casino’s president and general manager. “Recognition in the reader’s poll validates our continuing emphasis on providing our guests with an exceptional experience.”
Jumer’s began operation in 1992 in downtown Rock Island as one of the first riverboat casino operations in Illinois. In 2008, Jumer’s constructed a casino/hotel complex at the intersection of Interstate 280 and Illinois 92. Since 2011, Jumer’s has been owned and operated by Delaware North Companies.
