The Alton Belle is a typical Illinois river town casino. Inside everything is poorly lit and depressing. The Alton area downtrodden can be found spread around the casino spending their savings on the penny slots. It's definitely not an exciting casino experience like you could have in St. Louis or Las Vegas. That should be obvious - this is Alton... More

Unless there were additional levels we didn't see, it was quite small. Less variety of slot machines than we are used to. The whole place looked "tired" - aged and in need of some remodeling / redecorating.

My card club took the drive to Argosy last year. Yes, we went to game and we more importantly went to enjoy the Buffet! And enjoy we did. The variety of foods were fresh and well presented offering our most difficult to please several things she liked! But we all agreed as good as the salad bar and entree/sides were,... More

We don't gamble, but they have a good band occasionaly and we like dancing. Plenty to eat and drink too with two restaurants and a snack bar.

Easily one of the worst casinos I have ever been in (and I have been in a lot!). It's a relatively small casino with a poor selection of games. The design of the casino is terrible. The bathroom was dirty and the motion sensors for the sinks were not working properly. Machines were crazy tight. I did not see anybody... More

Riverboat gambling. Wasn't busy the night I was there. An entire bar without service, though there were video poker machines in the bar. You had to wait for a waitress to come by if you want a drink. A new bar without poker machines on another floor. Not much activity there. You're a gambling facility, not a bar, put poker... More

Nice small casino. I'd give 5 stars if I didn't have to wait so long for a beverage while playing at the card tables.
