A $500 Million Gamblers' Paradise is Breaking Ground in Louisiana

July 12, 2012 at 10:46 AM | by | ()

In about two years, it’ll be time to hit the slots at a new $500 million casino and resort project planned for Lake Charles in Louisiana. Construction begins by July 20th for the new 700-room Ameristar Casino Resort Spa Lake Charles, which will have 1,600 slot machines and 60 gaming tables. Paging VegasChatter!

Other planned amenities include tennis, golf, a spa, pools, a pleasure boat dock, croquet and falconry. Yes, we said croquet and falconry. Pretty snazzy, huh? With all of those amenities, we’re glad to know that there will be plenty of parking spaces. Yep. There will be 3,000 spaces, with a thousand of them in covered parking on the 242 acres.

This is the place to stay in South West Lousiana...and we doubt there is all that much competition.

The recently opened 750 room L'Auberge du Lac Hotel & Casino in Lake Charles is still working through the usual soft opening kinks. However, with the pool/lazy river opening this week, and the property celebrating one month of operations, it may be time to check out the L'Auberge.

One early visitor reports:

Now the room is no Venetian or Beau Rivage but is nice and the bed was very comfortable. Made my way down stairs and still found a $5.
Craps table around which was nice. I like playing the $5. tables because the people get more excited then the higher minimum tables.
Didn't win but that was no fault of the casino just bad dice that round, the waitress's were around often with with good drinks, not watered down ones.

$5 craps and stiff drinks...sounds like our kind of party. As usual, if you get to the L'Auberge before us, let us know what you think either in the comments section below, or viaemail.
