LEDUC, ALTA. — Albertans have a new place to try their luck.
Century Casinos Inc. has announced the opening of its racing entertainment centre at Century Mile Racetrack and Casino near Edmonton.
The casino features 550 slot machines and electronic table games, 14 video lottery terminals, a REPLAY gaming stadium with 28 unique play stations and an interactive digital wall display, an off-track betting room, a restaurant and a lounge area.
Later this month, Century will host its first weekend of thoroughbred racing on the one-mile racetrack. The track and casino are located on Edmonton International Airport land, near Leduc, Alta.
The location was chosen for its proximity to the Queen Elizabeth II Highway, which is the main corridor between Calgary and Edmonton and one of busiest routes in Western Canada.
Another key element of the location is its short distance to the airport, a shopping mall, retail outlets, hotels, a golf course and other businesses. Century Casinos is investing approximately US$46.6 million in the development.
