The Louisiana Gaming Control Board has unanimously approved The Cordish Companies to operate a casino in Bossier City. This milestone allows Cordish to proceed with their acquisition of Diamond Jacks Casino & Hotel and transform it into an impressive casino resort and entertainment complex under the Live! brand. The project is set to open in 2025 and will feature the first land-based casino in the Shreveport-Bossier market.

Joe Weinberg, Managing Partner at The Cordish Companies, expressed gratitude for the approval and conveyed their excitement for the project. He stated that Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana will bring a top-notch gaming, dining, entertainment, and hospitality experience to the community. This development is expected to create numerous job opportunities and generate significant economic benefits for the region.

During the public hearing, Cordish officials showcased the Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana, revealing that it will be an investment of over $270 million. The facility will include more than 1,000 slot machines, electronic table games, and over 40 live-action table games within its expansive 47,000 square feet of gaming space. Additionally, it will boast a sportsbook, a 550-room hotel, resort-style amenities, a 25,000-square-foot Event Center, and over 30,000 square feet of dining and entertainment options.

The Live! Casino & Hotel development in Bossier City is part of Cordish’s expansion strategy in the South Central and Southeast regions of the United States. They have other developments in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. Currently, Cordish has over $1 billion under construction in the Arlington Entertainment District. This project is an exciting endeavor that will undoubtedly elevate the entertainment options in the area.
