Wheeling Island (formerly Wheeling Downs) is a casino, hotel and racetrack in Wheeling, WV, not far from Interstate 70. The poker room at Wheeling Island opened October 19, 2007.
The poker room can be difficult to find from the main floor. It is adjacent to the "non-smoking" portion of the casino, and near the lowest level of the viewing area for the track.
A bad beat jackpot is now advertised.
