Caesars pumps $4m into Grand Victoria Casino renovations

Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin, Illinois

Nevada-based gaming company Caesars Entertainment has announced plans to invest $4 million to renovate its Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin, Illinois.

While other suburban gambling companies are relocating to new sites, the Grand Victoria Casino is staying put and undergoing a restoration process to include a World Series of Poker (WSOP) room and a Caesars Sportsbook outlet. The sportsbook will command 2,100 square feet with self-service kiosks and multiple cashier windows.

The remodeled riverboat casino will feature multiple gaming facilities including a poker room that occupies 4,400 square feet and hosts 12 poker tables, some 1,088 slot machines, and 30 table games, as well as impressive dining options.

The Senior Vice President and General Manager of Grand Victoria Casino, Rolando Guerrero, welcomed the renovation process with confidence and looked forward to future advancements in the casino.

“Caesars Entertainment focuses on the guest experience, as we’re trying to attract new business and players. We see these additions as a win-win for our property. At the end of the day, we will be a much more robust and quality company because of the way we position ourselves,” he said.

“We are very excited to move this forward. We hope to continue to improve and enhance the customer experience.”

Caesars stands to significantly benefit from the positive reputation the renovation will bring. The company runs two other popular casinos in Illinois: Harrah’s Joliet and Harrah’s Metropolis. Also, Caesars Sportsbook is a major online betting operator in the state.

Caesars acquired the Grand Victoria Casino in 2020. The venue will play host to Illinois’ first-ever WSOP event in November.

Illinois is performing well in terms of US gambling revenues. The state previously raised $565 million in gross gaming revenue (GGR) in just August, and reports show that since the launch of sports betting in Illinois in March, the state has yielded $1 billion in revenue. This yield makes it the second-largest sports betting state by metric, surpassing New Jersey and closely pursuing New York.
