Shortly before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, the ceremonial first roll of the dice at del Lago Resort & Casino will take place. Many involved with the more than year-long project are hoping the dice show lucky sevens, considered a sign of good things to come. Then, the doors of the $440 million facility on Route 414 will open for the first time.
Wilmorite founder and del Lago Director Tom Wilmot Sr., his son and Wilmorite President Paul “P.J.” Wilmot and del Lago Resort & Casino General Manager Jeff Babinski sat down Jan. 18 to talk about the facility. The casino, eateries and entertainment venue are slated to open Wednesday, while the hotel, spa, parking garage and some other amenities are earmarked to begin operations later this year.
