A multi-million dollar redevelopment of View Royal Casino
VICTORIA, June 5, 2017 /CNW/ - The entertainment scene on Vancouver Island is about to get bigger and better as the new Elements Casino Victoria is scheduled to open in the first half of 2018. Elements Casino Victoria will replace the existing View Royal Casino that is located in the Town of View Royal and has been under construction since February 2017.
With the multi-million dollar redevelopment, Elements Casino Victoria will be the largest all-inclusive, full-service gaming entertainment venue on Vancouver Island that will feature a 600-person multi-purpose entertainment venue, a 70,000 square foot gaming floor with approximately 800 slot machines and up to 25 table games as well as restaurants, lounges and a feature buffet.
"I am confident that Elements Casino Victoria will allow us to offer our guests and the entire Vancouver Island community the desired entertainment hotspot that will be known for giving a voice and a stage to local and regional talent, all while serving the best local cuisine and delivering an unparalleled guest experience," said Chris Lynn, Executive Director of Vancouver Island Casino Operations, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation.
View Royal Mayor David Screech is looking forward to the expansion and development of the property. "Having an entertainment venue of such calibre on Vancouver Island is a very important milestone as we will now be in the position to be a regional draw for the entire lower island marketplace. The Town of View Royal is thrilled to see this project moving forward," added Screech.
Elements Casino Victoria is owned and operated by Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, a leading owner and operator of 22 gaming entertainment venues across Canada and Washington State. "Introducing Elements Casino Victoria to the Great Canadian family of properties will be a momentous occasion for us as the new venue will be in the ranks of River Rock Casino Resort, Hard Rock Casino Vancouver and Elements Casino in Surrey," said Raj Mutti, Vice President Operations West, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation.
