The expanded version of View Royal Casino remains on track to open in the first half of 2018 and the revamped entertainment centre will come with a new name.
Elements Casino Victoria will feature a 600 person multi-purpose entertainment venue, a 70,000 square foot gaming floor with 800 slot machines and up to 25 table games as well as restaurants and lounges.
“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 Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, in a statement.
View Royal Mayor David Screech said he 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,” he said.
Raj Mutti, vice president of the company’s western operations, said that the expanded property will rank the facility among the company’s top B.C. casinos, which include the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, Hard Rock Casino Vancouver and Elements Casino in Surrey.
