RED DEER, Alta. — Red Deer Resort & Casino has unveiled its new casino.
Originally known as the Capri Hotel, the resort features 241 guestrooms, 15 meeting rooms, a conference centre that covers 53,000 sq. ft. and now a casino. Located in the heart of downtown Red Deer, the casino will offer a wide range of gaming options including slot machines, table games, poker room, dining rooms and bar. The expansion of the casino and upgrades to the hotel are expected to increase employment by up to 20 per cent with an increased need for dealers, servers and housekeeping professionals.
Additionally, the casino’s design also respects the cultural heritage of the O’Chiese First Nation. The sunrises over the Alberta prairies and the sunsets over the Rocky Mountains inspired the design for the casino space. An integrated waterfall symbolizes shared values of a deep connection to nature, ancestral lands and the spiritual importance of water. With more than 38,000 sq. ft. of play space, the casino’s design highlights the region’s beautiful landscape.
“The completion of the casino is a major milestone for us and the city of Red Deer,” says George Yammine, CEO, O’Chiese Business and Investment Centre, the owners of Red Deer Resort & Casino. “The casino will be a key driver of tourism and economic growth in the region, becoming a hub for entertainment for the region and beyond.”
“We look forward to welcoming guests to Red Deer Resort & Casino and providing them with a world class entertainment experience,” says Adrian Strawberry, hotel Operations manager, O’Chiese Hospitality. “We have worked tirelessly to bring this project to fruition and we can’t wait for you to experience it.”
