The spring flood of 2019 is receding for now, and Argosy Casino Alton plans to reopen for business on Thursday. The riverfront business closed on May 3 due to high water which made access to the facility nearly impossible thanks to water on much of the parking lot and around the entrance.

Argosy Alton will open to patrons again at 10am on Thursday. Meanwhile, the city of Alton and IDOT wait for the Mississippi River to continue to fall so clean up efforts can begin along Broadway and the Great River Road.
