Let’s take a look at the years that lead up to our 8th Anniversary Celebration with the history of Isle of Capri Casinos® and Isle® Casino Pompano Park!
The Isle of Capri Casinos group has a long history that goes back to 1991 when Bernie Goldstein launched the concept of riverboat gaming onto the international scene. His Diamond Lady opened its doors in Bettendorf, Iowa, and the industry hasn't stopped for a moment since. In the years to come, the Isle of Capri Biloxi teamed up with Guffport to become one of the largest gaming spots in the nation. Gamers flocked to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi to revel in good times, good drink and great company. That spirit is kept alive at the Isle Pompano.
Since 1995, the Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc has continued to expand and improve its operations to include properties in Pennsylvania, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, and even Colorado. All of these casinos set the stage for further development and the eventual opening of the Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park in 2007. The site opened on the historic grounds of the former Pompano Park Racetrack.
There’s always something fun to do at The Isle! These are just a few of the events, activities, and promotions we host to keep you coming back until our next anniversary!
From car giveaways to cash giveaways, there’s always winners at The Isle! Our Anniversary month was packed with great promotions including a BMW X3 giveaway ending April 25 and the chance to win a share of $20,000 in the All Smiles Slot Tournament! Make sure to look for great new promotions starting in May!
