Cascades Casino Langley Remains Closed
Gateway’s Cascades Casino Langley may have to remain closed for a little while longer. No possible re-opening date has been announced by the operator as of yet, but the expectation is that casinos may be permitted to open somewhere around the end of July/beginning of August. Despite the challenges faced by the operator as well as its employees, personal safety remains Gateway Casinos and Entertainment’s number one priority, the operator has said.
Local B.C. players are in the meantime welcome to engage with the online games made available by Crown corporation British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC). The Crown corporation offers a full spectrum of online casino and gaming entertainment at is PlayNow.com domain. The premium platform offers not only a safe and secure place to play until such time as casinos are permitted to reopen for businesses, but also various special promotions and jackpots aimed at keeping everyone entertained.
Re-Opening Will Be Gradual
The province has announced a four-phase plan aimed at gradually re-opening its various industries in such a manner that the risk of a second wave of infections is kept as low as possible. Currently in the first phase of re-opening, casino venues will likely only open somewhere between the months of June and September.
Venues will be re-opened according to the specific physical layout of each casino, so as to comply with the rules of keeping a safe physical distance between patrons. No official date has been announced regarding casinos in the province resuming trade, but the expectation is that B.C. casino re-openings will be permitted during phase number 3. Proceeding with caution will be the secret to ongoing success in curbing cross-infections.
Supporting Local Is Crucial
Casinos will in fact be re-opened along with amenities like parks, film production studios, select entertainment venues and facilities and also local schools. No casino or any other amenity or facility will be cleared for re-opening unless proper safety measures have been put in place.
Local Langley officials and local mayor Val van den Broek have in the meantime encouraged local residents to support the family-friendly offerings situated at the Cascades Casino Langley once its food kitchens have been cleared to resume business. These include popular restaurants and eateries like the famous Match Eatery & Public House and the equally popular Atlas Steak & Fish. It is more important now than ever before to support local businesses so as to ensure the protection of jobs and livelihoods.
