Our Commitment to Richmond
Bally’s community-first policy is a fundamental and defining element of who we are as a company. In every community in which we operate, we build strong, lasting partnerships with local residents and businesses.
Richmond will be no different. With this project, we are committed to ensuring that the Bally’s Richmond Casino Resort generates significant economic stimulus and creates a wealth of employment opportunities for the greater Richmond community.
We look forward to partnering with you, the City of Richmond, on this exciting adventure.

To ensure that the Bally’s Richmond fosters significant opportunities for the City’s local organizations and minority-owned businesses, Bally’s has entered into strategic partnerships with multiple local leaders, including the Lanier Family and Warren Thompson. We’ve also received support from the Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce and the Carolinas-Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council. Through these local partnerships, we will support, utilize, and develop lasting relationships with small, emerging and minority-owned businesses. We also look forward to partnering with historically Black colleges and universities to provide education and training opportunities, internship programs and prospects for long-term employment.
A Strong Sense Of

We take pride in supporting the local communities in which we operate and intend to become part of the fabric of the Richmond community. Our vision is for the Bally’s Richmond to serve as an economic engine for the Richmond community, transforming it into a tourist destination that offers employment opportunities to residents, and supports the growth and development of small and emerging businesses. Our innovative “Richmond Rewards” program is a hallmark of the project, which will promote local participating businesses, generating millions in revenue.
