Canadian gaming operator Gateway Casinos & Entertainment has acquired Chances Casino Kamloops and will take over the day-to-day operations of the facility with immediate effect. The acquisition makes Gateway the sole gaming provider in Kamloops, as the operator of both Cascades Casino Kamloops and Chances Kamloops.

This strategic acquisition marks the latest step in the firm’s growth strategy which has seen it expand its footprint and product offering across Canada with its proprietary casino and restaurant brands. With the addition of Chances Kamloops, Gateway now operates 26 properties in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario with approximately 8,600 employees.

“This is an exciting day for everyone at Gateway as we welcome Chances Kamloops and their employees to the Gateway family,” said CEO Tony Santo. “I’d like to thank the Hart Family for their commitment to the Kamloops communities and we look forward to working with them on a smooth transition.”

Based in Burnaby, BC, Gateway has made significant investments in the communities where it operates to improve the customer experience, which has brought hundreds of jobs and economic contribution to local economies.
