Iowa casinos contribute to organizations supporting veterans

The Riverside Casino, Grand Falls Casino and Rhythm City Casino teamed up to support veterans’ organizations ahead of Veterans Day on Nov. 11.

The three Iowa casinos under Elite Casino Resorts ownership utilize the Giving Back Program. Through that program, Iowa players can earn free slot play, just for making contributions.

Elite Casino Resorts CEO Dan Kehl said in a statement:

“Elite Casino Resorts is committed to improving every community we serve and honoring veterans for their service to our country. It’s a great way for our guests to support veterans and for each of our properties to reward our guests. The Giving Back Program puts our company values into action and benefits a great cause.”

Customers can donate to the Disabled American Veterans charity in November at Riverside, Grand Falls and the Quad City Outreach Center.

How to support veterans at Iowa casinos

When Riverside Casino players donate $20 at the Resort Club, they receive $20 in free slot play. All proceeds go to the DAV.

To donate, you must contribute on specific days in November. You can donate each Sunday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. CT and on Nov. 11 (Veterans Day) and Nov. 29 (Giving Tuesday).

According to Riverside’s website, all slot play expires at 11:59 p.m.

Unlike Riverside’s deal, customers at Grand Falls don’t need to come on a specific day to donate. Simply pledge $10 at the Resort Club for the DAV and you’ll receive $10 in Free Slot Play.

Grand Falls’ promotion starts on Nov. 1 and runs until Nov. 30.

Rhythm City customers can every Wednesday in November from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. CT. Casino members have a special offer on their donations as well.

Blue and Gold members with Rhythm City can unlock $40 Free Slot Play with a $20 donation. Classic and Peal members receive $30 Free Slot Play with a $20 donation.
