May 23, 2008 - Look out Las Vegas, Vancouver, British Columbia may just start giving you a run for your money. Not that Vancouver city officials are trying to do that, but the casino operators are certainly doing all they can to cater to gamblers in true Vegas fashion. As was and continues to be the case in Las Vegas, it's the force of competition that is driving casino operators to step up their overall entertainment offering.

The idea is to keep players around longer, who are more apt to jump around from casino to casino while spending late nights in the gambling district. While that may still be the case in the heart of Vegas, where visitors like to walk and roam to take in all the sights and sounds of the Strip, the point is to keep patrons (they don't necessarily even need to be gamblers) close by and divulging in other entertainment options, which in some cases, can be the real money makers for casino resort operators.

A perfect example is Vancouver's Edgewater Casino, where $1 million in renovations have just been completed. The finished project is the 290-seat Stadium Club Theatre, where everything from concerts to boxing matches can be hosted. Currently, it's the "Burlesque Beauties" who if you haven't seen, just look them up on You Tube. You'll probably be on the next flight to Vancouver.

Other casinos expanding their entertainment offering are Starlight Casino, where a Schanks Sports Grill (costing several million) proudly displays 120 high-definition video screens and offers mini golf, indoor driving range/fantasy golf, billiards and off-track betting - a true sports bar. And just around the corner in October will be the unveiling of the $153 million Grand Villa Casino offering an expansive 100,000 square feet of casino floor space, hotel, conference center, fusion restaurant, glamorous bars and a 200-seat theatre.
