It is a special week for Gateway Casinos & Entertainment and British Columbian gamblers, as this week Cascades Casino Delta officially commenced operations. The new gaming amenity is located on 6005, BC-17A. Its patrons will be able to enjoy a premium gaming floor of 500 slots, 18 table games and stadium-like gaming. All of which are complemented by the company’s trademark diners.
As with any other Gateway Casinos & Entertainment, the new Delta casino will come with the company’s signature MATCH Eatery & Public House and the Buffet dining amenities. The property is part of the gaming conglomerate’s investment plan for Delta and it cost approximately CA$99.3 million while also creating hundreds of stable jobs for locals.
On the day of the official launch, the COO of the company, Rob Ward, commented that it was a tremendous day for both Delta and the corporation. He believes that the new property is a testament to the resiliency and determination of a great many people who kept their focus and put tons of effort into making this state-of-the-art amenity a reality for the City of Delta.
The British Columbia Lottery Corporation is also pleased to see the property up and running. Board Chair Greg Moore of the Crown agency, said that the corporation is excited to launch the facility with the help of the gaming conglomerate.
