Three months after it was sold, the Jumer's Casino and Hotel in Rock Island has a new name. As of Wednesday it is Bally's Quad Cities Casino & Hotel.

Bally's bought Jumer's for 120 million dollars from Delaware North, and the sale officially closed in June.

The new owner promises to re-brand the casino and hotel with new signs, dice, cards, and chips.

Bally's Corporation currently owns and manages 12 casinos in eight states, a horse racetrack, and off track betting licenses in Colorado. It has more than 6,000 employees, and 3,300 hotel rooms. With some other pending acquisitions, it will own and manage 15 casinos in 11 states.
