For casino fans in Canada, September 7th is a date that should be marked in the calendar. That’s because it will see the big opening of the Grand Villa Edmonton development which will see a major casino and entertainment space arrive in the area and it sure to be a hit with fans and players from all over the country. It will be the first attraction of Edmonton’s Ice District. 

What’s it all about

Well, firstly, the cost, it was a huge $24.5m to construct and will be four stories high which makes it an imposing design in the city. But now for what you really want to know – what it contains.

Like all major casinos, this has a huge array of games. Firstly, there will be over 600 slots! Plenty of chances for you to hit the spins and potentially land the big jackpot. As well as that, there are 24 gaming tables that will feature all of the casino classics including roulette, blackjack and poker.


Find the right table, have your chips in hand and you will be ready to rumble. Hopefully the new tables will provide you with some luck!

Having such a large range of tables and slots is obviously good for the players as it gives them freedom to find what they want and also will attract the big players.

Economic boost

As expected, having such a popular entertainment outlet in the area will do wonders for the local economy, and possibly on a larger scale. Inevitably, it will bring in extra revenue with people spending money in the casino and the local hotels will receive a boost too, as tourists come from far and wide.

Furthermore, 200 jobs were created, giving locals the chance to get full-time employment in what is normally challenging circumstances.

On top of the casino there will be a match eatery and a public house restaurant, which will provide players with the opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves before or after they play.

So, with that in mind we think you should all keep September 7th in the diary and get yourself to Edmonton when you can to experience this fantastic new casino. Of course, until then you can still get your casino fix on Lucky Nugget Casino, but this will be worth a visit when it opens. A lot of money has gone into the Edmonton, but the benefits should make it worthwhile, from boosting the economy to providing a new service to the area – so go and enjoy, and good luck!
