Ontario-based Casino Niagara, which was initially planned to be a temporary gambling venue, turned into more permanent than ever and it is even undergoing a reconstruction project. Casino Niagara announced that it is nearing completion on a major renovation project, which started in June this year. The casino officials disclosed that the C$7 million revamp project is to be finalized in November. The casino officials assured that the work is going on budget and on schedule. The main drive behind the casino facelift is to increase its revenues and exceed its customers’ expectation.
According to President of Niagara Casinos Richard Taylor, the entire renovation project, which is to breathe new life into the casino, costs C$7 million. He highlighted that the good condition of the casino is due to Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s support (OLG). He added that up to now, the casino has invested almost C$30 million in its development.
Mr. Taylor decided to offer a peek behind the scenes of Casino Niagara, which is currently under reconstruction. The improvements will be focused on the second floor of the casino, which spreads over 25,310 square feet. Once the renovation of the second floor is over, it will turn into a source of never-ending entertainment and recreation for players and sports fans. Mr. Taylor shared that the casino invests C$3.5 million in the renovation of the second level, setting aside the other half of the money for the latest first-class technologies. In that way, all casino customers may find their gambling oasis in Casino Niagara.
The casino is to offer sports betting options complied with OLG’s high standards and a poker room with over 20 tables. The good old slot machines will be also included in the casino’s portfolio. The cherry on the cake is that the casino is to offer less traditional gaming experience such as Xbox and skill-based games. As for non-gambling activities, the casino is to offer a sports-themed restaurant and a bar.
Casino Niagara – from Temporary to Permanent
As aforementioned, the casino officials’ initial plan was to establish Casino Niagara as a temporary gambling venue. But the things changed drastically. Opened on Falls Avenue in 1996, the gambling venue is still there with its flashy glamor. Currently, there are 2 Niagara Falls casinos, including Casino Niagara and Fallsview Casino. Both casinos, though, seem to be profitable as they attract approximately 9 million visitors per year. Apart from that, both casinos give a job to more than 4,000 people and stimulate economic activity in the region. Casino Niagara’s revamp project perfectly fits OLG’s plan to boost and modernize the country’s worn out gaming industry.
