The casino is owned and operated by Las Vegas-based Boyd Gaming, which also owns the Diamond Jo Casino - Worth in Northwood, Iowa. It is a member of the Iowa Gaming Association, and its license is held by the Dubuque Racing Association, which operates Q Casino. Beginning operations on May 18, 1994, the Diamond Jo was a 3-level, 305-foot (93 m), 1,500-passenger vessel in Dubuque's Ice Harbor. The boat was a dockside that did not cruise, the casino became land-based when its new facility opened December 11, 2008.

The Diamond Jo Casino is located at 301 Bell Street, in the rapidly developing Port of Dubuque. The casino, along with the nearby National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium and other attractions, have helped to create a large and growing tourism market in Dubuque.

  • Overally pretty good! The biggest drawback was the smoking which you can smell basically everywhere (except the tiny non-smoking area). They had a lot of machines, table games, and free soda/water. They also had an area for sports betting. Would love to come back if only I could leave without smelling like an ashtray.
  • Always a fun & safe location for a visit! The buffet was delicious this past Saturday! The casino slot machine choices are endless! Love the choices her in comparison to many locations in Vegas too!
