Paragon Casino Resort Celebrates 28 Years in Marksville

For the past 28 years, Paragon Casino Resort has been the premier entertainment destination in Central Louisiana.

Marksville, La. – Paragon Casino Resort celebrates its 28th anniversary this June with a host of special offers and entertainment opportunities for the whole family. The anniversary celebration kicked off Friday, June 3 with remarks from Paragon Casino Resort Assistant General Manager Chris J. Barbry, Sr. thanking Paragon Casino Resort’s loyal guests and community partners. The party continued with cupcakes on the casino floor and several special offers for guests and visitors that last all summer long.

“As we celebrate our 28th year, Paragon Casino Resort continues to lead the way in Louisiana,” said Paragon Casino Resort Assistant General Manager Chris J. Barbry, Sr. “Since we opened our doors nearly three decades ago, we have offered our loyal guests the ultimate entertainment experience and plan to do so for many years to come.”

Paragon Casino Resort’s 28th year was full of milestone achievements. In October 2021, Paragon Casino Resort was the first casino in the state of Louisiana to launch in-person sports betting, powered by Betfred Sports. This monumental occasion placed Paragon Casino Resort at the forefront of sports betting in Louisiana. When fans come to place their bets, not only can they wager in real-time, but they also have the opportunity to visit all of Paragon Casino Resort’s other incredible amenities, including an award-winning golf course, day spa, shopping plaza and the area’s only cinema.

In addition to sports betting, Paragon Casino Resort has seen several physical upgrades over the past year, including the opening of the Draft Room, a 600 sq. ft. sports bar boasting wall-to-wall sports and gaming options and a North Tower hotel renovation with a relaxed yet modern aesthetic to accommodate overnight guests.

Paragon Casino Resort always aims not only to care for its guests, but the local community. Over the last year, Paragon Casino Resort has contributed over $1 million to Avoyelles Parish, the most in their long history of contributions to local organizations and the Parish.

Paragon Casino Resort encourages its guests to take advantage of the deals and specials they are offering to celebrate this incredible milestone all summer long.
