Bally’s launches campaign to support proposed $650m Virginia casino

| By Robert Fletcher
US land-based casino operator Bally’s Corporation has launched a new campaign in an effort to drum up support for its proposed $650m casino resort in Virginia.

Last month, Bally’s put forward a proposal to construct the casino on a 61-acre site located north of Powhite Parkway and east of Chippenham Parkway, on the western border of Richmond.

The facility would span 1.6msq ft and include a casino with 2,500 slot machines, 90 table games, 30 poker tables and high-limit gaming. Other amenities include a sportsbook and 250-room hotel.

The City of Richmond is expected to issue its decision on Bally’s proposal in June, though Richmond must first select a preferred casino operator and location before a referendum on the casino takes place.

If approved by referendum, the chosen casino may be built.
