Slowly but surely, all the casinos in Southwest Louisiana are starting to reopen. L'auberge and Golden Nugget were the first ones to open last Monday, May 18 at 6:00am. Then, Coushatta Casino resort in Kinder followed suit on Wednesday, May 20, reopening at noon. Now, we have learned that Delta Downs casino reopened on Wednesday at 1:00pm.

Of course, Delta Downs will also follow the state of Louisiana's and the gaming commission's guidelines for Phase One of reopening casinos. They will keep to 25% capacity, which includes their employees, and only have 50% of their gaming machines on and working to promote social distancing.
