About Chances Kelowna

You've come to the right place.

Located in central Kelowna, Chances is known as a 42,000 square foot Community Gaming Centre with the latest slot machine themes, electronic bingo and tables games; as well as a full-service restaurant. Longshots Lounge situated on the upper level of Chances, along with a cozy teletheatre for our horse racing fans to relax in while they wager on live races.

Sitting at his desk in his jeans over a roast beef sandwich is Stan Walt, the owner of Chances Kelowna.
