Surrey, BC unveiled an upgraded and renovated design to the establishment formerly known as Fraser Downs Racetrack Casino. Now called Elements Casino, the venue opened to the general public on December 17th, 2015 after undergoing a multi-million-dollar upgrade. This follows a VIP party hosted by the casino that presented some of the new aspects of the building to select guests. Other than the VIP’s and a Christmas party hosted for the company, the new look will be a first for every visitor. However, the slot games section of the casino was opening slightly earlier in the month before everything else. This updated layout is reportedly an incredible improvement to the building that spans a total of 56,000 square feet.
Games featured at Elements Casino have received a facelift, with a handful of new additions joining the others on the floor. About a dozen new tables were added for games, including roulette and blackjack. The tables and other aspects of the floor were also reorganized with the goal of showcasing a better flow to the overall layout of the games. This same concept was applied to the slot games so that customers can have a more organic experience when they walk through the casino to enjoy the entertainment.
The improvements to the casino also include the only buffet in the city of Surrey that is open and operates seven days a week. Called Diamond Buffet, this restaurant is conveniently located near a main entrance of the casino and works to serve the needs of many different guests. Another food establishment named Foodies has been added to the casino as well. This restaurant has more of a fast food feel to it, and is specifically designed for players who want to be in and out quickly with their purchases.
Perhaps one of the more exciting additions happening at Elements Casino is the inclusion of a new multi-purpose entertainment venue. The venue is known as Escape, and the casino plans to have at least two musical acts performing there during the course of the week. This area will fit as many as 300 people, and can be rented out for other special events when it is not being used otherwise. There will also be a smaller lounge open to a capacity of 60 visitors that is poised to feature smaller acoustic acts and solo artists.
It’s exciting to know that casino entertainment is alive and well in Surrey. The casino offered a press release to various media outlets that established its new mission statement. Elements Casino aims to offer more diverse gaming options for all visitors, as well as access to new venues, food choices, and the long-standing staple of horse racing. If the concept art and photographs are any indication of the upgrades, the new casino design looks to make waves in the gambling industry. As the holidays approach right around the corner, Elements Casino has reopened just in time as a primary choice for gamers looking for some fun with their time off.
