An investment in remodeling the Royal River Casino and Hotel has meant changes to every area of the building, including offices, hotel rooms, the gift shop and the gaming floor. The four-stage project is scheduled to be completed this fall with work on the restaurant, hallway and remainder of the gaming area.
“We have the same four walls,” said Tim Morrissey, senior operations director. “Everything within those same walls has been updated.” The casino has changed out carpet, painted, replaced the heating and cooling system and installed energy-efficient LED lights. Management couldn’t say the cost of the entire project.
Tim Morrissey, senior operations director at Royal River Casino, takes a tour group of people who attended the Flandreau Development Corporation’s annual meeting to an updated part of the gaming floor, which includes blackjack tables, machines and an expanded area that formerly was office space.
The casino employs 265 people.
