Ka-Ching! Caesars Virginia Hits It Big With Recent Opening

Casinos Danville Casino

Doesn't look like much on the outside, does it?

Caesars Virginia has made an impressive $12 million in revenue during its first two weeks of operation. The temporary location opened on May 15 to much fanfare and big crowds. Of that $12 million in revenue, $1 million has been earmarked for improvements to the city of Danville. Danville has created an advisory committee to determine how to best allocate the funds. The committee will include city officials as well as community members. The Caesars Virginia casino has brought in a significant amount of money in a short amount of time, and it will be interesting to see how the city chooses to use the funds to benefit the community on an ongoing basis. Money from the casino won’t be allocated to regular, ongoing expenses. Rather, it will go towards special projects like school construction, neighborhood restorations, and so on.

The 40,000-square-foot temporary casino is open 24-7, with around 500 slot machines, 20 table games, and a sportsbook. Head to the old Dan River Mills complex on West Main Street to take a look. The big-time 500-room resort is under construction, but it’s gonna be awhile. They currently expect it to be ready in late 2024. It could be longer than that. While you wait, the temporary location looks like it’s providing a good time for visitors looking for a lucky strike.
