Fairfax County, Virginia
Fairfax County may become home to a new casino resort. Legislation has been introduced in the Virginia General Assembly that would transfer the unused Richmond license over to Fairfax County. The preferred location for the casino is Tysons, Virginia or an alternative site near a Silver Line stop. Similar legislation failed in committee last year.
Fairfax County may receive the unused casino license assigned to Richmond. The City of Richmond was one of five cities authorized for a casino by the 2019 Virginia casino gambling bill. However, Richmond voters twice rejected a casino (2021 and 2023).
In early 2024 a new casino bill was introduced in the state senate to transfer the Richmond license to Fairfax County or to add a sixth licence for the County.

2024 Senate Bill 675
The Virginia Senate Bill 675 was introduced by State Senator David W. Marsden (D-Burke) on Jan. 17, 2024. The bill is revised from a similar bill that failed in committee last year. The new legislation would allow the casino license originally assigned to Richmond to be reassigned to Fairfax County. Alternatively, the General Assembly would approve an increase to six state-licensed casinos.
Here is a summary of the key provisions in Bill 675:
If the bill is passed by the General Assembly and signed by the Governor, a casino license would be available to qualifying counties with populations over one million. Only Fairfax County meets that criteria.
Fairfax County would then hold a referendum for voters to decide whether to approve a casino.
Fairfax County would select a casino site anywhere outside Interstate 495 and near one of the seven Silver Line Metro stations.
Casino applicants would be required to include a hotel, convention center, and concert center in their casino proposal.
On Jan. 24, 2024, Senate Bill 675 was passed by the Senate Committee on General Laws and Technology with a 10-4-1 vote, and sent to the Committee on Finance and Appropriations for review.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has expressed opposition to a casino in Tysons.
There are two preferred locations currently under discussion for a casino in Fairfax County.
The preferred casino location of State Senator David W. Marsden is near the Spring Hill Metro station in Tysons. The Tysons street address is 8546 Leesburg Pike, an abandoned Exclusive Automotive Group car lot. Sen. Marsen authored the casino bill, Senate Bill 675, currently in debate in the state senate.
An alternative location for a casino is Reston, which is the choice of Comstock Holding Companies Inc., a real estate company. Comstock is seeking to develop a casino near the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station. There is local opposition to this location.
February 5, 2024
A Virginia Senate bill to authorize a casino in Fairfax County with voter approval was stopped in subcommittee last week. The Senate Subcommittee on Resources voted 4-0 to postpone further action on the bill until the 2025 legislative session rather than sending it on to the full Senate Finance and Appropriations Committee. This delay will provide more time to study the details of the plan and consider the reactions of the public.
The bill, authored by State Sen. Dave Marsden, proposed a casino, hotel, conference center and entertainment complex be built in Tysons on the west side of Route 7. The location would be near the Spring Hill Metro station and Dulles Access Road.
