Calling all residents of Kamloops, British Columbia – If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to get off your couches, turn off your tablet casinos and make your way to the brand new Cascades Casino Kamloops. The grand opening on August 19 was a huge success as locals came out to experiences the 65,000 square foot property, complete with slots, table games, poker tables, multiple restaurants and more.
Cascades Casino Kamloops offers residents and visitors the most advanced combination of gaming, entertainment and dining experiences the city has ever known. The expansive casino floor is teeming with 500 slot machines, an impressive variety of 18 table games, and a live poker room. Visitors will also be able to enjoy the variable cuisine of three exquisite restaurants and live entertainment.
Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar was delighted by the grand opening of the new BC casino, extolling its employment of 330 individuals. “Most importantly”, the Mayor lauded the “improved traffic solution for the area”, as Cascades Casino is located at 1555 Versatile Dr. just off the Trans-Canada Highway.
Jim Lightbody, CEO of the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC), was equally pleased by the superior quality of the new casino property. “Cascades Casino Kamloops reflects our long-held vision to provide Kamloops with an outstanding gaming facility and we are proud to celebrate its opening with Gateway Casinos,” said Lightbody. “Kamloops residents can look forward to a first class entertainment experience, which offers something for everyone.”
Gateway Casino & Entertainment, owner of the new gaming facility, is the operator of a dozen high-class gaming facilities throughout BC and Alberta, Canada. Based in Burnaby, BC, Gateway’s CEO, Tony Santo, said he believes the new casino’s success will be based primarily on the superior social experience provided to their patrons; something smartphone and tablet casinos, beloved more for their convenience, simply cannot provide.
“This is about people going out and having a social experience,” said Santos just days before the grand opening in August. “Our changes are trying to stay current with what people want. We aren’t only about gambling. We’re about entertaining people.”
