Cordish Approved For Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana Operator’s License

An aging Louisiana casino that closed during the pandemic and never reopened is about to undergo a massive transformation thanks to the Louisiana Gaming Control Board (LGCB).
The LGCB approved a gaming operator license for The Cordish Companies , a well-known developer in the gaming space that will turn Diamond Jacks Casino & Hotel in Bossier City into Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana.
The Cordish Companies plans to spend $270 million on overhauling the riverside site. The location will be the company’s fourth Live! casino resort, adding to Hanover, Maryland, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh properties.
Latest news a positive one for aging Louisiana casino
At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Diamond Jacks closed its doors like many casinos nationwide. However, unlike other casinos, it never opened its doors for business again.
Recent photos of the Louisiana casino reveal an unkempt property that looks far past its prime. Cordish is the third company to own Diamond Jacks in the past three years.
The original owner, Peninsula Pacific Entertainment, sold the property to Foundation Gaming. The LGCB approved the sale at the beginning of this year.
Diamond Jacks was slated for demolition  as Foundation Gaming planned to open an overhauled casino in 2024.
However, Foundation’s plans never transpired, and in April, The Cordish Companies bought the property. LGCB Chairman Ronnie Johns said the board was “pleased” to approve Cordish’s license:
“Cordish has an exceptional reputation in providing first-rate casino experiences as well as hospitality and entertainment venues across the country. We are pleased with their decision to bring their Live! brand to the  State of Louisiana .
We feel comfortable that their commitment to a first-class $270 million  project will help grow the  Bossier City / Shreveport gaming market. We welcome The Cordish Companies and look forward to working with them to bring this project to a reality.”
Cordish anticipates that Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana will open in 2025.

Cordish, which operates Live!-branded casinos in multiple states, has big plans for the Diamond Jacks site:

45,000 square feet of gaming space
More than 1,000 slots and electronic table games
More than 40 live-action table games
550-room hotel
Resort pool and fitness center
25,000-square-foot event center
Surface parking and a parking structure
30,000 square feet of dining space

Additionally, the casino’s Luk Fu will offer Southeast Asian cuisine.

“Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana will be a transformative development that will bring a first-class gaming, dining, entertainment, and hospitality experience, create significant new jobs, and generate millions of dollars in economic benefits for the community.
