There are few things better than something bright, shiny, and new. New things make us feel good, whether a new pair of sneakers, a new car, or a new casino.
Certain things, like shoes and cars, are easy to replace with new ones relatively simply and without much hassle. However, something like a new casino is a bit more complicated.
That said, 2022 has been a good year for casinos. Though the world’s newest casinos in the list below are still in their infancy, they are working hard to make lasting first impressions. They also prove that finding a gleaming new casino might not be as hard as you think.
Horseshoe Lake Charles (December 2022)
Virginia players can rejoice because this spectacular casino is now open in Westlake. The casino, which opened its doors on December 12, 2022, is part of the Caesars Entertainment group and is a replacement for the Isle of Capri Riverboat Casino, which shuttered in 2020.
Horseshoe Lake Charles Casino has over 800 slot machines and 40 table games. There is also a World Series of Poker room, and players can place wagers on sporting events via the Caesars Sportsbook from within the casino.
Gambling isn’t the only thing on offer. There is also a 253-room hotel that includes conference facilities, a fitness center, and a pool is currently being constructed. Even if you’re not staying overnight, there are also various restaurants and bars to enjoy.
Resorts World Hudson Valley (December 2022)
Originally expected to open on December 1, 2022, Resorts World Hudson Valley will be fully open to the public from December 28, 2022. The casino, located in Newburgh, New York, is owned by Resorts World, which operates numerous casinos across the United States.
Estimated to hold over 1,200 slot machines, the casino has plenty in store for anyone wishing to try their luck at winning a massive windfall. Even though there aren’t any table games, you can still enjoy electronic versions of classic games like roulette, blackjack, poker, and baccarat.
In the center of the game floor is the Resorts World Bet Sports Bar. Here, you can find a 360-degree view of all available casino games while enjoying sports on the big-screen televisions and having a drink with friends.
Grand Island Casino Resort (December 2022)
Even though the launch of this temporary casino has been delayed while final licensing and approvals are sought, Nebraskan players should get excited. The casino, located in Grand Island, Nebraska, will be operated by Elite Casino Resorts and take residence in the famous Fonner Park.
The temporary casino will feature over 300 slot games, horse race betting, table games, and an Elite Casino Resort Club. While there aren’t currently any fixed eateries, there is a snack bar for players to enjoy.
The permanent structure for this casino will begin construction in September 2023 and is expected to be completed by 2025. Once complete, the casino will offer over 650 slot machines, 20 table games, a VIP room, a sports bar, and 118 hotel rooms.
Cascades Casino Delta (September 2022)
After construction began in 2018, many players in Delta, British Columbia, have been excited about the launch of this modern casino owned by Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Limited. Thankfully, the wait ended when Cascades Casino Delta officially opened on September 29, 2022.
For those looking to win, there are over 500 slot games and 18 tables. These are arranged in a stadium style and let you quickly see other gaming options. In addition, several spectacular restaurants and bars are available on site if you get hungry while playing.
If you’re in the area for more than just gambling, the casino has world-class conference facilities that you can use to get business done before you play. Wanting to stay over is also taken care of thanks to the adjoining Delta Hotel, which offers 125 rooms, a day spa, and a fitness center.
Legends Bay Casino (August 2022)
Built by Olympia Gaming and opened on August 30, 2022, Legends Bay is located in Sparks, Nevada. Before even opening, it was making waves as the first new casino to open in Northern Nevada in 20 years.
With over 650 slot machines, there are plenty of USA slots to play. If you prefer tables, there are 10 table games and a separate high-stakes section. Players who want even more can also place wagers with the sportsbook operated within the casino.
If you want to take a break from gambling, there are several mouth-watering eateries and bars and even an IMAX movie experience to keep you entertained. Accommodation isn’t available in the casino, but a Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton and a Marriott Residence Inn just steps away from the casino offer reasonable prices.
Table Mountain Casino Resort (July 2021)
Located in Friant, California, Table Mountain Casino Resort offers an incredible array of entertainment opportunities. The casino is part of the greater Table Mountain Rancheria, which a company of the same name owns. It officially opened its doors on July 21, 2022.
With over 2,000 slots and 30 table games, there is plenty for gamblers to choose from. There is also a high-limit room for the big spenders looking to cash in big. For those who instead want to enjoy more active sports (with perhaps a private wager on the side), the Eagle Springs Golf course is located just across the road from the casino.
There is also a 171-room hotel that boasts 46 suites. If that isn’t enough, the restaurants, bars, and conference venues certainly add a lot more. In addition, world-class live shows offer even more entertainment for guests.
