Wheeling Island Upper Gaming Level Is Open

The casino will offer 1,500 slots, 37 table games, poker, simulcast wagering and 3 restaurants to guests!

Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack is open offering slots, table games, poker, hotel, restaurants and simulcast wagering to guests despite the high river waters. The only area not available at this time is live greyhound racing.

“We are glad the predictions have come in lower than expected, thus giving us the opportunity to still service our guests 24/7,” states Jim Simms, President & General Manager of Wheeling Island. “In the meantime, we will continue our recover efforts on our live greyhound racing,” continued Simms. 

Wheeling Island also plans to award 4 lucky winners $25,000 Free Play in their  $400,000 Free Play Frenzy Giveaway. Drawings take place tonight at 3pm, 5pm, 9pm & 11pm. Wheeling Island’s $25 Buy-In Blackjack Tournament will also begin at 2pm with a guaranteed $1,000 Cash prize pool.
