Well this really didn’t take long. The Dania Casino & Jai Alai recently announced that it will be closing in October 2014 for about a year. The temporary closing comes with about 300 jobs that will be lost, but officials are saying that it’s a necessary move to complete the $50 million in renovations still planned. The additional renovations are expected to take about a year and the Dania Casino & Jai Alai is expected to re-open in November-December 2015. The casino’s owners, Dania Entertainment Center LLC, expects to add 500-600 new jobs once renovations are completed. The struggling casino has had a hard time finding its footing since opening this year and they also owe some back taxes to the state.
We had done a review of The Dania Casino & Jai Alai and felt, while it was new, it needed additional work to make it an enjoyable place to play. Hopefully they can take this time to make things right. Here is a link to our review of The Dania Casino & Jai Alai – http://ftltoday.com/dania-casino-jai-alai-review/ .
