DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — It’s been eight months since, Ceasars Virginia held its groundbreaking ceremony, in Danville. However, as construction continues, the Virginia Lottery Board has approved the facility’s operating license.
On Wednesday, April 26th, Ceasars Virginia became the third casino facility in Virginia joining HR Bristol and Rivers Casino Portsmouth. This approval comes after an extensive background investigation and review of application materials submitted by Ceasar’s Virginia LLC.
“For months, the Lottery’s Gaming Compliance Department and legal team have conducted background investigations and examined every detail of this application,” said Virginia Lottery Executive Director Kelly T. Gee. “Those investigations include not just Caesar’s Virginia, but all the vendors and employees as well.”
Caesar’s will initially operate at a temporary location while it prepares to open its permanent facility.
