Location: Peoria, Illinois
General Description: The Par-A-Dice Casino is located on a 4 level ship on the Illinois River in Peoria, Illinois. On shore are a number of shops and restaurants, as well as, a luxury hotel. The ship is devoted exclusively to the casino with slot machines and gaming tables on each floor.
1) The only strange thing about a ship being used as a casino is the constant rumbling of the engines, I assume to provide the power for the gaming machines. During the middle of the week, we did not find the casino very busy and were able to find multiple slot machines to occupy us for a couple of hours. In terms of luxury, it was middle of the road.
