The casino at Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby

The casino is equipped with the latest slot machines on big, curved screens. After the newest additions, the casino has over 1,300 video slot titles. Those who prefer table games can take a seat at one of 67 tables that feature games such as blackjack, baccarat, roulette, craps, and poker.
Speaking of poker, there is a dedicated poker room with 12 tables where you can test your skills against other guests. The poker games include No Limit Texas Hold ’em and Pot Limit Omaha High.
Of course, Grand Villa Casino also has something for those who prefer a little bit more privacy and exclusivity. The VIP section features three rooms — the Cypress Room, Lions Room and Maples Room. These areas allow guests to enjoy a high level of comfort, gorgeous views, and a private bar. Guests also benefit from dedicated hosts. It should go without saying that VIP rooms have higher limits than usual. Cypress and Lions are for baccarat and blackjack players, while the Maples Room has some of the most popular slot machines.
Last but not least, there’s Pulse Arena — the party hub of the Grand Villa Casino.

Grand Villa Casino history
Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby opened in November 2007, and it’s one of two flagship properties of Gateway Casino & Entertainment Limited, the other being Starlight Casino in New Westminster. In spring 2009, Delta Hotels opened a hotel and conference space right next to the casino.
The entire complex underwent a C$15 million renovation a few years ago, and this transformation made Grand Villa one of the most modern and impressive land-based casino establishments in the whole of Canada.
