Gateway Casinos Gives a Sneak Peek of Diverse Gaming at Western Fair

Gateway Casinos & Entertainment is ready to meet the expectations of its gaming patrons and give them a sneak peek of the bright future ahead. When it comes to London, Ontario, this could happen with gaming expansion at its Western Fair gaming hall.

As many as eight table games are about to be introduced to the popular gaming venue, a move that would diversify the local field and pave the way for the upcoming expansion. London is bracing for a brand new casino complex in the foreseeable future, but until its construction reaches its final phase, locals could get a taste of it.

Gateway Casinos is ready to step up its game and bring card games to the local casino scene. This week saw the official launch of table games operation at Western Fair’s gaming venue which has been praised by the community. General Managed Damien de Roux announced the new feature.

Eight Table Games Installed

He clarified that this is something many players have been asking for over the past few years, as it has the potential to make their time spent there even more exciting. It is also a projected magnet for more players hailing from neighboring communities.

At the moment, there are some 750 slot machines available on site which also offer hefty jackpots, but could leave something to be desired. As a result of the gaming expansion on site of the Western Fair gaming hall, 50 new workers have been employed, a positive boost for the local employment market.

From here on out, local players would have the opportunity to enjoy card games to the likes of blackjack, baccarat, Mississippi flood, and high-card flush. Locals are about to get a taste of the true Las-Vegas style gaming that is projected to make its way there.

With the new staff additions, their overall number on site swells to 320 members and what they are all looking forward to is their relocation to the new casino complex on Wonderland road.

CA$75M Casino Complex Launches Soon

Starlight Casino London is projected to attract a local crowd, as well as people from neighboring communities, as it is located in the vicinity of Highway 401. The CA$75-million casino complex overseen by Gateway Casinos is projected to relocate all gaming equipment and employees from Western Fair.

In addition to that, the new complex is about to welcome 700 more staff members ready to meet the high expectations of casino patrons and people interested in the more family-friendly offerings. When all is said and done, there would be 900 slot machines available on the premises of the casino floor, as well as 40 table games for the players ready to explore card games.

It could be recalled that earlier this summer, local councilors stated that the casino expansion should remain focused on Western Fair. Ward 9 Coun. Anna Hopkins and Ward 11 Coun. Stephen Turner stated their position that a casino venue would be best positioned for success at Western Fair District and this is the right thing to do both for the local economy and local horse people. As it is known, the casino operator is no longer interested in pursuing a casino venue within Western Fair.
