A new casino will be built in Virginia by the contractors of Caesars Entertainment.
The property, to be called Caesars Virginia, is going to cost around $650 million to build and will be open in four years.
The builders would be planting their first shovels within a few days, according to the newly set up Caesars Virginia account.
The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians became a joint venture partner in the $650 million Caesars Virginia development, according to the account. The project is going to break ground this week.

The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians are an Indian tribe that is just across the state line from North Carolina.
Our nation and our people will benefit from this venture. Richard Sneed, Principal Chief of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, explained to the press that they are expanding their partnership with Caesars Entertainment to develop a first-class resort that will be defined by luxury and service that guests have known and come to expect.
The doors will be open before the end of the decade. A 500 room hotel, 1,300 slot machines, 85 dealer dealt tables, 23 electronic tables, a theatre, a spa, multiple bars, and a WSOP Poker Room are just some of the things that will be built at Caesars Virginia once completed.
There will be 3,700 square meters of convention space for the poker room to spill over into during big tournaments.
Anthony Carano, the President and COO of Caesars Entertainment, said, “We are excited to build a world-class Caesars resort in Danville with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, a valued partner of Caesars Entertainment for more than 20 years.”
The diverse collection of destinations across the U.S. is synonymous with unparalleled service, impressive benefits through our Caesars Rewards loyalty program, and superstar entertainment talent.
The same amazing offerings will be brought to the Danville region.
