Elite Casino Resorts is a small operator that currently owns three casinos, all of which are located in Iowa. Like many other operators of land-based casinos that have partnered with existing companies, Elite decided to find an online sportsbook partner, as well. As a result, the operator partnered with Bally’s in November 2020. Bally’s is currently working on an online sportsbook for players in Iowa. This state is the first one where the company will be able to offer its services without a land-based presence.
Even though online sports betting is legal in Iowa, online casinos still aren’t. Therefore, Rhythm City Casino doesn’t offer its services online.

Rhythm City was founded in 1991 as a riverboat casino, not long after Iowa legalized casino gambling. However, back then, the casino was named The President.
The most significant change (apart from the name) occurred in 2016 when the casino moved to a land-based site. The riverboat used to be next to LeClaire Park, and will be converted into park space.
The casino is operated and owned by Elite Casino Resorts, a business that was started in the ’60s by the Kehl family. Nowadays, the Kehls family is the major owner of Elite, which currently operates two other Iowa casinos: Riverside Casino & Golf Resort in Washington County and Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort in Lyon County.
