Casino Table Game Hours Review - May 14, 2015
Itís been just over a year since the AGLC changed policy to permit extended table game operating hours of 10 a.m. to 3 a.m. in Alberta casinos.
The AGLC has reached out to all Alberta casino advisors and almost 2,000 charitable and religious groups to find out how these extended hours are working for our stakeholders.
If you are a charitable or religious organization that did not receive an email and would like to provide feedback, please contact Matt Becigneul, Manager of Strategic Policy at email@example.com or 780-447-8952.
Century Downs Racetrack and Casino - April 1, 2015
The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission would like to congratulate the new Century Downs Racetrack and Casino in Balzac on its official opening today. This new entertainment complex features a horse racing track, a gaming floor, off-track betting, a lounge and a restaurant. Horse racing is scheduled to start on April 25.
Like all Racing Entertainment Centres in Alberta, this facility will benefit all Albertans by contributing a portion of its revenue to the Alberta Lottery Fund to help support volunteer, nonprofit, public and community-based initiatives. In 2013-14, almost $1.5 billion in provincial gaming revenue went into the Alberta Lottery Fund.
The AGLC received the application for this Racing Entertainment Centre before the Board placed a moratorium on new gaming facilities. The application therefore continued through the licensing process.
For more information about this new facility, please visit Century Downs' website.
