Bally’s Unveils a Transformed Kansas City Property

The recent expansion of the Kansas City casino is notably Bally’s most significant investment in the property yet

Casino and hospitality leader Bally’s Corporation has confirmed the opening of the now-expanded Bally’s Kansas City property. The venue now features a 35,000-square-foot gaming and retail area that will provide guests with exciting experiences.

The entire casino floor has been reimaged with tons of new gaming products getting added, Bally’s said. Customers can expect to find 200 new games and a dedicated high-limit slot area. The property boasts a second floor that seeks to provide visitors with a more relaxed and comfortable gaming experience.

In addition to the improved gaming area, Bally’s Kansas City is now home to Chickie’s & Pete’s Crabhouse and Sports Bar where guests can refresh themselves. There is enough space to incorporate additional restaurants and shops in the future.

The casino has also undergone what Bally’s described as an “extensive aesthetic renovation.” Sporting a refreshed interior and exterior, the casino now boasts state-of-the-art lighting elements, greatly improving the atmosphere. The façade is illuminated by a series of steel frames and fabric panels, giving the property a fresh and modern look.

The casino has multiple entrances, allowing guests to park and step into the casino right after.

Bally’s Corporation has been working hard on upgrading the venue since acquiring it in 2020. One of the highlights of the property is the Asian-themed 1800 Baccarat Lounge which offers Asian food and eight baccarat gaming tables. The property also has a Celebrity Casino & Lounge on the second floor where players can find 30 slot machines, a blackjack table, a baccarat table and a selection of dining options.
