Shorelines Slots located at Kawartha Downs re-launched operation this Wednesday after as many as nine weeks of shut down and this was the highlight not only of the week but also of the month for both casino patrons and workers employed there. The previously announced opening of the casino venue happened at noon on December 19 and there was a cheerful crowd awaiting the said hour with eager.
Following an extensive period of hiatus for the gaming venue, the news about its renewed working schedule and subsequent launch of operation came at the beginning of this week. The community appeared to be more than content with the news of more gaming available in the region, whereas permanent employees at the facility were more than grateful to make their way back to their job place for the holiday season.
Casino Venue Relaunches Operation
Wednesday saw an impressive crowd of people willing to be among the first to see the renovated casino location. The Fraserville community was buzzing with excitement as gaming operation means permanent employment for people part of the workforce at Kawartha Downs. It also means that the location will once again be able to attract casino patrons from near and far willing to try their luck.
Present on site for the re-launch of operation were Kawartha Downs and Speedway general manager Orazio Valente and general manager Bryan Buchanan of Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs. They welcomed everyone interested in seeing first-hand everything different at the casino facility. Just as it was projected, the renovation was able to redraw the attention of people interested in Shorelines Slots and what it has up for grabs.
A shiny ribbon was cut on the official launch of operation and casino patrons were welcomed back after the nine-week hiatus. This renovation brought on site as many as 150 brand-new slot machines that have yet to be tried out. Flashing lights and loud sounds, as well as cheerful music quickly filled the space of the casino venue and people were quick to see what the buzz is all about.
What Caused the Delay?
It could be recalled that October 1 was the day on which the casino venue closed for operation, soon after Shorelines Casino Peterborough launched operation. Initially, the hiatus was meant to last only two weeks, giving the management enough time to subject the venue to an extensive cleaning, repainting, and change of the interior.
What prompted the extension of the break was putting the finishing touches to the agreement between Kawartha Downs and the Ontario government. Following several changes, the agreement was inked but back then neither of the parties had the permission to reveal more about it. A non-disclosure agreement was preventing them, however, from revealing more details about the changes.
Thanks to this agreement casino workers also were granted permission to remain employed at this venue and return to their workplace this Wednesday. More excitement for players brought the news that next year is going to see as many as 21 live races at the harness race track, marking an improvement from 18 race dates this year.
