The expanded View Royal Casino remains on track to open in the first half of 2018, while the revamped venue will be rebranded under the Elements Casino Victoria name.
Located in View Royal, British Columbia, construction of the new casino, which will replace the existing property, began in February.
“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,” said David Screech, the mayor of View Royal.
Elements Casino Victoria will feature a 600 person multi-purpose entertainment venue, a 70,000 sq ft gaming floor with 800 slot machines and up to 25 table games as well as restaurants and lounges.
The venue is owned and operated by Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (GCGC), which operates 22 gaming properties across Canada and Washington State, including 14 casinos.
“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 for GCGC.
