LRGC Gaming Investors, a subsidiary of The Cordish Companies, is embarking on the construction of the Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana. This groundbreaking project will transform the Shreveport-Bossier market into a premier destination for gaming, entertainment, and hospitality.
With a budget exceeding $270 million, the Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana is set to catalyze economic growth by generating substantial tax revenues for the City of Bossier and the State of Louisiana. Over the course of five years, it is expected to contribute roughly $35 million in gaming tax revenues to Bossier City and over $168 million to the state.
Not only will this project have a significant financial impact, but it will also create employment opportunities. Approximately 750 construction jobs will be available during the building phase, and an additional 750 permanent positions will be created in the gaming and hospitality sectors.
Jon Cordish, Principal of The Cordish Companies, expressed their excitement about the Live! Casino project. They believe it will provide a world-class gaming and entertainment experience for millions of visitors, generate economic benefits for future generations, and extend their gratitude to state and local officials for their support.
Opening its doors in 2025, the Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana will encompass a vast gaming space of over 47,000 square feet. It will offer an impressive selection of 1,000+ slots, electronic table games, and live-action table games.
In addition to the gaming facilities, the property will feature a sportsbook, an upscale hotel with 550 rooms, a resort-style pool, a fitness center, and a 25,000-square-foot Event Center for entertainment and gatherings. The dining and entertainment options will occupy an area of 30,000 square feet.
Located on the former site of Diamond Jacks Casino & Hotel along the Red River in Bossier City, the Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana follows The Cordish Companies’ successful renovation and transformation of Diamond Jacks Casino & Hotel. This development sets the stage for the Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana to become the region’s premier land-based casino and entertainment complex.
