Cascades Casino Delta opening pushed back into 2021

Delta casino delayed

Delta residents will have to wait a while longer before sinking a few bucks into the slot machines close to home.

That’s according to Gateway Casino & Entertainment Ltd., which has confirmed a timeline for the opening of Cascades Casino Delta.

During an investor conference call on Gateway’s planned merger with Leisure Acquisition Corp. to create a publicly traded company valued at nearly $1.5 billion, it was reported that the $87-million Cascades Casino Delta is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Gateway is also engaged with a third party to build and operate a hotel on the property.

Located at the former Delta Town & Country Inn site in Ladner, the facility will include a 40,000-square-foot gaming floor with up to 600 slot machines and 30 gaming tables, as well as a Match Eatery & Public House, a buffet and Atlas Steak + Fish restaurant.

“We are working on the extensive land preparation and expect construction of the building to begin in early 2020,” Tanya Gabara, director of public relations, told the Optimist. “It has been our experience with projects such as this that it is best to open all of the amenities at once as opposed to a phased approach. As such, it is our plan to adjust the projected opening so that all the spectacular amenities of Cascades Casino Delta are ready for guests at the grand opening.”

Gateway had previously targeted an opening in late 2020.
