If you felt like Delaware Park Casino needed some upgrades, you weren’t alone. The casino is making progress on a $10 million renovation project to modernize the main gaming floor.
Terry Glebocki, president of Delaware Park Casino & Racing, said the gaming floor’s new design will tie in the feel of the country’s top gaming destinations. Glebocki said in a statement on the casino’s website:
“The renovation will usher a new look and future for Delaware Park Casino & Racing, bringing notes of Las Vegas and Atlantic City to Delaware. Our goal is to make the property more modern and comfortable for our existing guests as well as to attract new audiences, making our casino a premier destination in the region.”
The renovations should be complete by the end of the summer or early fall. It is the first casino renovation in nearly 30 years. The casino shares the Delaware Park property with a horse track that’s home to several high-profile horse races.

The $10 million the casino is pouring into its gaming floor will be well spent, as the property will receive multiple upgrades:
- All-new bespoke chandeliers and lighting
- Custom carpeting
- New gaming furniture
- Vaulted ceilings
- Wall murals
- New high-end midi-baccarat pit
- New high-end blackjack pit
- New slot machine themes
- A bigger VIP bar
- A new noodle restaurant
The Delaware casino released renderings of what the new gaming floor will look like. The images reveal a modernized space with colorful carpeting, white ceilings, and bright lighting.
Property overhaul was part of the Delaware casino acquisition
While the renovations started this year, Delaware Park noted that plans to give the gaming floor a facelift were part of the property’s 2021 acquisition by the Clairvest Group and Bruico Gaming LLC.
The owners hired Glebocki this year to help spearhead a turnaround at the aging property. Before Delaware Park, she served as the CEO of Atlantic City’s Ocean Casino Resort.
Glebocki was able to turn the casino’s fortunes around, boosting its gross operating profit to nearly $25 million in her final year at the property.
Under her leadership, she hopes she can help the casino keep pace with its competitors in the mid-Atlantic region. “You need to be competitive, you need to be current, and that’s what we’re trying to do here,” she said.
