Rick Baker, president and chief executive officer of the Illinois Quad-City
Chamber of Commerce said, "They have done a nice job. They didn't spare any
expense. It is something the community can be proud of.
One of the things I like, from an entertainment value, is there are four
different kinds of restaurants, a sports bar, a piano bar. You can go out — and
even if you are not a big gambler — you can enjoy a live show. It has more of a
Las Vegas feel. It's really going to be a showcase to the Quad-Cities. It's
really like a resort-type facility."
