    Grand Villa Casino Edmonton Cutting Hours

    Is this a sign of the times of what is yet to come? After being open for almost 3 years, the Grand Villa Casino at the Roger's Place in Downtown Edmonton AB Canada announces drastic changes in its operating hours. The reason doesn't surprise anyone.

    From what I hear, some of the casinos are busy and some are not. This one is not (unless there is an event going on at Roger's Place).

    Am I surprised by this? Not really because it seems like Casinos are not as popular anymore (probably due to the economic times in Alberta). I had the opportunity to visit a few casinos there on my last visit (on Friday/Saturday Nights) and what I saw was quite interesting to say the least:

    Yellowhead Casino (about 900 machines). Packed full and everyone was looked to be having a good time. There was live music in the Venue as well.

    River Cree Resort (1400 machines) not busy at all. No live entertainment and no atmosphere. It just doesn't feel like a casino anymore there. Really low moral to say the least. Only times its busy if there's a show or draw.

    Starlight Casino (West Edmonton Mall) a bit busy, had live entertainment but not in the Casino. Casino has it's dead zones though. Lots of people near the tables. Casino doesn't have a winning feeling though.

    Just from my observations, it seems like Yellowhead was getting the most players (could be that the still offer the most bang for the buck). They also had the best selection of old/new games. They also have easy access from all sides of the city. Probably getting some of the Northlands players as well (which closed last year).

    From what I hear alot of players are heading to Nisku to the new Century Mile Racetrack Casino. Probably because it's new and exciting. I didn't stop there as it wasn't open yet.

    For the record I never visited Grand Villa Casino due to the lack of parking
    Wonder how many think the same way
