Elements Casino Chilliwack Rings in a New Era this Friday

Elements Casino Chilliwack is bound to relaunch operation on November 1 following almost two months of renovation. The rebranded casino venue is about to welcome its patrons with a fresh new face and interior ready to change their life. In order to make the reopening party even more exciting, the Reckless band is about to make a Bryan Adams tribute on stage, calling for a celebration.

Casino expansion is crucial for the successful development of a casino operator. Bringing new offerings and making the local field more diverse has been a main driving force for Canadian casino leaders. Great Canadian Gaming is among the leaders on the local gaming scene, making 2019 a year of many improvements, expansion, and new casino complexes. Chilliwack is the latest area that benefited from the process.

Six Table Games Added

The casino operator revealed its plans for rebranding and renovation at the begging of September, elevating attention to detail to a whole new level. Formerly known as Chances Casino Chilliwack, the casino complex is bracing for the first patrons ready to see everything new on its premises. The location would now be referred to as Elements Casino Chilliwack with an expanded array of offerings.

November 1 is projected to see a lavish event with tons of celebration, live performances, and diverse gaming. The Reckless band is projected to take over the stage at 9:30 p.m. to the delight of all Bryan Adam s fans. Locals are in for a treat, as they would hear hits to the likes of Diana, Run to You, and Cuts Like a Knife live on stage.

Moreover, they are also about to be able to legally play a game of blackjack, Texas Hold’em or four card poker. Great Canadian Gaming added six table games to the entertainment opportunities on site, making the location a hotspot. Locals and residents of the region have been demanding table games for quite a while now, tempted to travel to Elements Casino Surrey or even Hard Rock Casino Vancouver.

Gaming Expansion and Rebranding

Table games have been among the main topics of discussion for local officials this summer, evaluating the pros and cons of expansion. Coun. Bud Mercer expressed his concerns that the expansion could draw unwanted dirty cash, especially in the light of recent money laundering discoveries in British Columbia.

He worried that opening the local casino venue to a whole new range of gaming players could result in the attraction of unwanted dirty cash. Casinos such as River Rock Casino in Richmond have allegedly served as laundromats of crime proceeds for years. Public input on the subject saw locals express their support on the edition of six table games.

Last fiscal year brought some CA$2.04 million to the city coffers and expansion is projected to increase this amount. Charity organizations have also experienced a healthy boost over the past seven years. Gaming revenue is expected to witness a 10-percent increase with the expanded gaming offerings on site. Players will have the chance to experience the renovated venue as early as 9 a.m. on Friday.
