Over the years, some staff have cheekily teased that they should change the name from Chances to Changes because they seem to always be ripping down walls and reviewing floor plans. The steady growth of the slot floor has also helped to build a strong following in the full-service restaurant, Longshots Lounge. That, too, is known for its unpredicted growth. Just a couple of years after opening Chances, to successfully offer the menu players desired, the company renovated the upstairs to create a comfortable restaurant that even attracts guests for social reasons, with no intention to gamble. Chef Rene Wunderlin has spent the last eight years whipping up delicious menu items and catering offerings for Chances Kelowna.
In 2013, Walt realized it was time to take the business to an even higher level – he was ready to share the driver’s seat, so to speak, and invited well-known gaming professional Jovica Perovic, to be the General Manager. Perovic’s experience in the industry along with his leadership skills have been paramount to refining the business and capitalizing on hidden opportunities.
Today Chances remains in a growth phase and looks forward to continuing to work with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation to make Chances Kelowna the best it can be by “helping players escape into a world of gaming entertainment.”
