Riverboat Casino Ends Operation In Sioux City

July 31, 2014, 9:37 AM

Riverboat Casino Ends Operation In Sioux City
SIOUX CITY, IA -

After fighting for months to remain open, Sioux City's floating casino has ended two decades of legalized gambling on the Missouri River. The Argosy Sioux City closed with little ceremony Wednesday.

A female voice announced over the public address system, "Attention, the Argosy Casino is closed."

The closure followed an Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission order requiring the Argosy to cease operation because it wasn't partnered with a state-licensed local nonprofit group, as required by state law.

Argosy fought the order but last week the Iowa Supreme Court ruled the casino needed to close.

On Friday morning the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City will open in the city's downtown.
