A multi-million dollar redevelopment of Fraser Downs Racetrack and
SURREY, BC, June 24, 2015 /CNW/ - As the owner and operator of leading
gaming entertainment venues such as River Rock Casino Resort and Hard
Rock Casino Vancouver, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation ("GCGC") is
proud to announce the launch of Elements Casino, set to open this

With the redevelopment, Elements Casino will aspire to be Canada's
all-inclusive, full service gaming entertainment venue that delivers
unrivaled personal service, exciting live entertainment options,
unsurpassed dining experiences and gaming offerings consisting of
casino games and standardbred horse racing.

opportunity to ensure our guests experience something uniquely special.
With our mix of gaming options, entertainment and culinary experiences,
I am confident Elements Casino will be the primary entertainment choice
for many," said Michael Kim, Director of Operations, Fraser Downs
Racetrack and Casino.
Scheduled to open late this year, Elements Casino will feature more than
550 state-of-the-art interactive slot machines along with table games
such as baccarat, blackjack, roulette and poker. Guests will be able to
enjoy new dining options focused on profiling fresh and modern menu
styles all while experiencing live entertainment showcasing local and
regional talent. In addition, Elements Casino will continue to offer
live standardbred racing six months per year as well as year-round
simulcast racing. The 2015 standardbred racing season will commence
once again on October 1.

us an opportunity to elevate, improve and diversify the entertainment
experience within the Surrey marketplace, a region that is currently
growing and projected to be the most populated city in Metro Vancouver
by 2020," said Chuck Keeling, Vice President, Stakeholder Relations and
