It appears Lady Luck is smiling on Hanover.
Gateway Casino is investing 18 million dollars into renovating and expanding their casino operation in Hanover.
The expanded casino comes with the promise of up to 70 new jobs onsite.
The expanded casino will be located in the Hanover, Bentinck & Brant Agricultural Society’s unfinished Carriage Hall.
This is the glass shell of a building that is located at the back of the current casino that has sat empty and unfinished for years.
The expanded casino will be rebranded as Playtime Casino Hanover and will feature 300 slots and 8 live table games.
It will also showcase a restaurant that will offer live entertainment, pay per view sporting events and it will be a family restaurant open to all ages. (Match Eatery & Public House and The Buffet eateries)
Gateway Director of Communications Rob Mitchell says Playtime will deliver a high energy and fun experience with an expanded footprint of 32,672 square feet with an additional 3,283 square foot mezzanine.
Renovation work on the Carriage Hall building is already underway.
Mitchell expects everything to be complete in late December, hopefully before Christmas.
Hanover Mayor Sue Patterson is thrilled saying this will build upon Hanover’s entertainment destination and provide a real economic boom to the entire region.
With up to 70 new jobs to fill, Gateway plans to host a Job Fair in the coming months.
