Rhythm City Casino in Davenport is closing due to high flood waters.

According to a spokesperson from Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc. the casino will be closed temporarily until waters from the Mississippi River recede.

“Unfortunately, as the Mississippi River continues to rise above 17.5 feet, access to our property has been compromised forcing us to close,” said the vice president and general manager of Rhythm City Casino, Bill Gustafson.

Gustafson said river levels have not affected the Bettendorf property.
