CLINTON, IA The Wild Rose Casino & Resort celebrated its grand opening this weekend at Clinton. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Friday and was attended by Mayor Rodger Holm, Representative Polly Butka, CCCDA President Tom Fullerton, and Wild Rose Entertainment officials. That was followed by a reception.

Saturday featured a performance by Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers. Sunday included champagne brunch and performances Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers and auctioneer Leroy Van Dyke.

The new $35 million Wild Rose Casino & Resort is just off Highway 30 at 777 Wild Rose Drive. The casino is 120,000 square feet with 598 slot machines and 14 table games. There is a 60-room hotel, conference center, sports bar and buffet.

"This is the beginning of a new era and tradition for our players and guests," said Tim Bollman, general manager of Wild Rose Clinton. "Since first dropping anchor as the Mississippi Belle II, this casino has offered a fun place to play. Our new land-based casino takes the experience to the next level by offering amenities such as a single-level gaming floor, Coaches' Corner Sports Bar, Sawmill Buffet, Wild Rose Hotel and the Oakwood Grand Ballroom."

"The response from the community and guests is already beyond what we expected as our guests are experiencing all the positive changes our new facility has to offer. Right out of the gate, we can feature entertainment such as the Gatlin Brothers and hold events and parties that simply weren't possible at the old location," Bollman said. "The new location near Highway 30 is easier to find, even for our many out-of-state players who drive in primarily from Illinois and Wisconsin."
