Casino boats are giant floating casino’s. Some are permanently moored with a boardwalk entrance while others float around freely.
The concept of a “casino” emerged in Venice, Italy in 1638 with the founding of the Ridotto Gambling House. After that, it didn’t take long for the concept of a “casino boat” to make that critical leap from concept-in-brain to actuality-in-reality.
The classic gambling boat would be a Mississippi River paddlewheel riverboat that’s 600ft long, 3-stories high and has a 5,000-person capacity.
Currently, Stomar Incorporated, is selling the ARGOSY IV Casino Boat for $1,500,000.00.
Built in 1994, the Argosy IV is 240ft long, 77ft wide, has 3-decks and each deck is 17,000sq ft. This boat used to be the old Argosy Casino in Siox City, Iowa. At its peak, the Argosy had 300 full-time workers and was raking in $50mil. in annual revenue.
Now wouldn’t it be cool to have a permanently moored casino on the Detroit River in Detroit, Michigan? Yes, Detroit already has three great casino’s (Greektown, MGM, Motor City) but a “floating casino” would be an instant destination spot due to the novelty. Plus it would create hundreds of jobs and generate millions in revenue. Bring a permanently moored floating casino to Detroit someone!
