Isle of Capri executives are now holding their breath, waiting, on the Missouri Gaming Commission to make a decision on where to award the state's final casino license.
They're also no doubt celebrating a strong "Yes for Gaming" vote last night, with 61 percent of ballots cast in favor of a Cape Girardeau casino.
But this wasn't the only vote Tuesday night with a potential impact on Isle of Capri.
The state of Iowa requires the counties with casinos re-vote every eight years on whether or not to allow casino gaming in their communities. Isle of Capri has four casinos in three Iowa Counties, all of which voted to continue casino gaming last night.
No Iowa county has ever voted out gambling once it's been established since riverboats came there in 1991.
In Blackhawk County Iowa, where Isle of Capri has a casino in Waterloo, voters re-approved the casino with 76.7 percent of the vote.
In Clayton County, Iowa, Isle operates a Lady Luck brand casino in Marquette, voters overwhelmingly re-approved gaming with 82.3 percent of the vote.
In Scott County, Iowa, where Isle of Capri has two casino properties, one in Bettendorf and one in Davenport, voters re-approved gaming 74 percent of the vote.
In all, Isle of Capri has 15 properties in six states, but is headquartered in St. Louis.
