Something’s cooking in Canada as customers excitedly await the opening of Ontario-headquartered Great Canadian Entertainment’s new CAD 1 billion ($758.5 million) casino resort in Toronto. 

The leading gaming and hospitality company announced that Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto, which is being built at the intersection of Highways 401 and 427 in Ontario’s capital city, is slated to open this summer.

Impact on the whole district:

Everyone is excited about the grand opening of this major casino, which will be located across 33 acres

The architecture is modern and up-to-date, and the casino will be in the same style. It will remind the customers of Vegas casinos, modern and innovative. The destination is also attractive: it is close to the Woodbine Racetrack

The new resort will include a hotel with 400 rooms, a live entertainment venue with 5,000 seats, and various dining options to satisfy even the pickiest customers. 

The casino will completely change the environment, opening the door for establishing the district as the popular destination in Toronto for all the fans of exclusive gaming content, entertainment, and fantastic hospitality experiences.

The Casino Woodbine, which already operates, will continue to work without any interruptions while the company opens its new Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto. 

Matthew Anfinson, CEO at Great Canadian Entertainment, said: “We see this as an unprecedented opportunity to introduce an entirely new, world-class experience in Canada that will bring together the best in casino gaming, exceptional live entertainment, dining, and accommodation in one very special place. We are very excited to reveal more about what this landmark destination will feature and what our guests can expect in the coming weeks, including the announcement of an opening date. This project has been several years in the making, and we are thrilled that we are close to bringing it to life.”

Various benefits for loyal customers:

A well-known Great Canadian Rewards program is one of the company’s biggest successes. It started in August 2022 in Ontario, and it is a great help in learning the news about Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto and the other company’s properties. It also keeps track of all generous special offers, which is a great way to gain some points from the audience. The members of this program get discounts when booking hotels. They can also gain other perks and benefits, such as comp dollars that can easily be redeemed in restaurants or casinos for meals and gaming credits. The customer only needs to possess a Great Canadian Rewards card

One of the company’s most important partners is Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG). Together they can focus on their mission to promote safe gambling in all Great Canadian Entertainment casinos in the province. The same will continue in the new Toronto casino, where the PlaySmart Centre will be placed to help players gain knowledge about gambling and provide them with tools that will help them build and maintain healthy player experiences and habits.
