This is a crappy smokey barge casino. Wait till the Hard Rock opens to go gaming in this area. Do not go in the dark.

Check the hours of operation before you go. This casino is not open 24/7. It was very smokey and dirty. I would not go back.

The Argosy is currently in a legal battle involving the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission and the Missouri River Historical Development group (MRHD). In 2013, due to a variety of circumstances, they lost their bid to build a new casino and were to have closed earlier this month. The casino that did win the bid was the MRHD-sponsored Hard Rock...

Got up earlier than other friends on a recent trip so made our way over to the Argosy. It was super early on a Sunday morning, so not busy, but I was impressed with how clean it was inside. They had a mixture of old and new games and a pretty-good variety.

Located on riverfront. Small boat but the management has done a good job of making it as nicer as possible except the smoking - for some reason casinos forget majority of adults don't smoke - while Argosy staff try to keep it clean - the few times we go there we have to change clothes as soon as we get...

I have yet to win ANY money here. Lots of machines rendered me winless. The facilities and staff are helpful. Various games are available. Non-smoking area works well for many gamblers. Payouts should increase if Argosy wants to compete with other casinos in the area.
