04/01/13 – Casino Queen Offers Free Shuttle Rides to and from St. Louis Cardinals Games

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill., April 1, 2013. . . With the start of St. Louis Cardinals baseball season, the Casino Queen is reminding fans that its free shuttle service, for guests 21 and older, is a great option to avoid the traffic hassles and save a bundle by not having to pay for expensive parking close to the stadium. Casino Queen offers an abundance of free parking and its free SEVENS shuttle service begins two hours prior to the start of each game and continues until one hour after each game’s completion.

The free shuttle picks up sports fans approximately every 15 minutes right outside the Casino entrance and drops them right in front of Busch Stadium. Parking at the Casino Queen is not only a perfect way to avoid traffic and high costs of parking lots downtown, but it also gets fans steps away from the action, entertainment and exceptional dining offerings inside the casino.

“The SEVENS free shuttle is absolutely a time and money saver for people attending sporting events downtown and after the game, we encourage fans to consider taking advantage of our hotel packages that start at just $70 per person,” said Jeff Watson, President and CEO of the Casino Queen.  “And, for those without tickets to the games, the SEVENS sports lounge is the perfect spot for fans to be in a fun atmosphere and still cheer on their favorite team.”

SEVENS sports lounge was specifically designed to give fans the ultimate sports-viewing experience. The sports lounge features a 14-foot-wide by 8-foot-tall retractable screen, four 70” HD LED flat screen TVs and a video wall consisting of four 46-inch flat screens tiled together to form one large screen. On days when there are several games taking place, the video wall can be used to show one game while the big retractable screen can display another, which is any sports fans dream come true.  The atmosphere is enhanced even more by the menu created by the award-winning executive Chef, Ken Fischer, which features daily specials and game-day deals. All fans will appreciate the fact that if the Cardinals win, 10-inch pizzas are just $2 the next day.

Casino Queen, located at 200 South Front Street in East St. Louis, Ill., is the only employee owned, locally owned casino in the country. It was established in 1993 and has since made more than $10 million in charitable contributions and invested more than $200 million in capital improvements on the East St. Louis riverfront. For the past seven years, Casino Queen has been recognized for having the nation’s highest slot payback among individual casinos by Casino Player Magazine.
