This weekend is going to be a special one for Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, as it is going to see the official launch ceremony of Gold Horse Casino which is projected to transform the community and its entertainment potential. Over three days of celebrations, everyone would enjoy the new venue and its wide variety of live performances from Aaron Goodvin, The Trews, and James Barker Band among others.
January 17 is a special date in the agenda of many people in Lloydminster, as it the day that will give green light to the celebration period on site of the new gaming venue in the region. The area itself is a special and rather unique one, as it is situated on the border between Alberta and Saskatchewan. Now it is going to become an even greater attraction to people from near and far thanks to the new casino venue that is about to launch operation very soon. The future appears to be bright.
Construction Work Took About a Year
Celebrations on site are set to commence this Thursday at exactly 3 p.m. with delicious cupcakes and tons of cheer for everyone curious to see the new venue and what it has on offer. Later on, at 7 p.m. Aaron Goodvin is going to take over the stage on site. Tickets start from CA$35, whereas the show will commence around 8 p.m. On the following evening The Trews are going to perform live for all their fans, once again starting at 8 p.m.
Tickets for this event retail at CA$40 and everyone interested could purchase them via the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority’s official ticket reservation online platform. Saturday night will see James Barker Band live on stage at 8 p.m. Tickets for this live show within the range of the opening celebrations is CA$40. However, live concerts are not the only way people could have the time of their lives.
It is a casino venue after all, so it makes sense for it to offer some generous gaming offers within this special period of celebration. Daily Hot Seat Draws are set to take place within the next few days. Every player could win a CA$25 worth of slot action. In addition to that, those who prefer the premium devices of IGT will have an even bigger chance of winning a trip for two to the City of Sin Las Vegas.
Premium Offerings and Opportunities
Players will also have the chance to win an upgrade to their backyards thanks to the raffle that could ensure their summer is splendid. One they fill in their application form, they will join the January 19 draw for a brand new fire pit and two Adirondack chairs which will transform their summer open-air nights. At exactly 9 p.m. one lucky player will hear their name and receive the coveted draw prize.
Furthermore, a simple selfie could make the change, literally. Casino customers can post their selfies and photos on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #vivalloydminster. They would also have to tag @goldhorsecasino so their posts could be easily reachable. Every day three lucky players will bag the CA$50 pass for slot action at the casino venue. It is going to be open and welcoming everyone from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. on most days. On the days from Thursday to Saturday closing time will be extended to 4 a.m.
The venue itself spans across 48,000 square feet of gaming space, providing space for all various gaming offerings. There are some 250 slot devices in operation, as well as 5 live table games. Alternatively, there are also 18 electronic table games on offer. As for the more family-friendly offerings on site, there are two restaurant areas, as well as the event venue which will welcome the three live concerts this week.
