A mixed review for Iowa casinos. All together, casinos and race tracks brought in nearly 1 and a half billion dollars this year. That's up nearly $70 million from last year. Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission credits the boost with a mild winter, an improving economy, and the new Larchwood Casino. But despite the good news, things are not looking so hot for local casinos. Isle of Capris in Bettendorf and Wild Rose in Clinton made less this year than last.
