Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited (Gateway) opened a new addition to a list of casinos in Canada – Cascades Casino Delta (Cascades) at 6005, BC-17A. Cascades features 500 slots, 18 table games and stadium-style gaming, as well as Gateway’s signature restaurants MATCH Eatery & Public House and the Buffet. The new casino represents an investment of $99.3 million in Delta and the creation of hundreds of new jobs.
“This is a wonderful day for Delta and Gateway Casinos. I am proud to say, despite the challenges of the pandemic over the last two and a half years, we finally reached our destination,” said Gateway’s Chief Operating Officer, Rob Ward. “This new property is testimony to the resiliency and determination of a great many people who kept their focus and worked hard together to create a state-of-the-art entertainment destination for the City of Delta.”
The latest property to be unveiled by Gateway features their proprietary casino and restaurant brands. The Cascades brand is built around the design inspiration of “Play”. Gateway has successful Cascades properties in North Bay and Chatham (ON) and Langley, Kamloops and Penticton, BC. The signature restaurant brand, MATCH Eatery & Public House, offers the welcoming, family-friendly experience of a neighbourhood pub with the high energy and excitement of a sports bar, plus live entertainment and multi-season patio spaces. Cascades also features the Buffet which provides a unique combination of excellent food at value pricing, with an entertaining and family-friendly atmosphere. Rounding out the amenities is a new state-of-the-art 5,000 sq. ft ballroom that converts into (3) conference separate spaces.
“BCLC is delighted to open the brand-new Cascades Casino Delta in collaboration with our partners at Gateway. Offering an innovative gaming experience and access to industry-leading player health resources, the casino will provide excellent entertainment for our players to enjoy safely,” said BCLC Board Chair Greg Moore. “At the same time, the casino will provide significant economic benefits to the community in the form of jobs and support for local initiatives and provincial programs through the revenue it generates. We look forward to the ways B.C.’s newest casino will shape the future for the City of Delta and beyond.”
“I would like to congratulate Gateway Casinos and Entertainment on the grand opening of Cascades Casino Delta. Gateway’s investment in this new entertainment destination has created hundreds of new jobs that support the growth of our local economy and tourism.
