Great Canadian Gaming Casinos Relaunch in Ontario

Great Canadian Gaming Corporation is ready to greenlight operation at 11 of its casino locations and gambling halls in Ontario. They will open September 28 and welcome up to 50 patrons at all times, promoting physical distancing across their premises. All safety protocols and health recommendations have been kept in mind and implemented for the safety of all individuals.

Ever since March 2020, the province of Ontario has remained without in-person gambling, as all casinos had to temporarily close for business. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation wanted to make sure that the dynamically changing situation is not going to negatively affect its casino staff members or casino patrons while they are on the premises of the casinos and gambling halls.

Casino Reopening

Great Canadian Gaming Corporation is ready to see the official relaunch of 11 of its casino venues and gambling halls within the province of Ontario. September 28 is the important date for the local casino field which will see the official relaunch of many premium gambling locations on a provincial level. Shorelines Casino Peterborough is one of them.

The casino management revealed that the gaming hotspot in Peterborough will be open and welcoming patrons between 10 a.m. and 2 a.m. They will get the chance to gamble seven days a week but for the time being, only slot machines will be available. Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs is also going to relaunch operation on September 28, being one of the 11 gaming hotspots in Ontario eligible for reopening this month.

Shorelines Casino Belleville is also going to become one of the popular casinos returning to their daily operation. Rod Baker, Chief Executive Officer of the casino operator, stated that no financial benefit is expected from neither of the casinos reopening this Monday. Elements Casino Brantford is also preparing for the official reopening this Monday. It will work between 10 a.m. and 2 a.m. allowing players enough time to enjoy everything up for grabs.

11 Venues Open

Reserving spots is currently possible online on the casinoโ€™s webpage. Elements Casino Grand River will give a green light to its operation too. Casino patrons ready to gamble at Elora will have to make their way to the gaming hotspot some 15 minutes ahead of their reservation time. Shorelines Casino Thousand Islands will greenlight operation on September 28 too, bringing back a quarter of its normal capacity.

In addition to those, Elements Casino Mohawk and Elements Casino Flamboro are also projected to welcome their first patrons in months at the beginning of this week. Reservations making ahead of time is mandatory. Casino Woodbine is also expected to relaunch operation with all safety measures intact.

This premium location will be joined by Casino Ajax and Great Blue Heron Casino, once again with all protocols already in place. Many of the slot machines available have been switched off in order to create more physical distance between the patrons. Georgian Downs will also see the return of its in-person gaming return, fueling its purses and supporting the local horse racing field.
