Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto Kicks off Poker Room Services

After launching in June 2023, Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto is now commencing operations at its brand-new and state-of-the-art poker room. The new amenity is open to patrons seven days a week and offers 30 tables while being located on a private floor and catering to poker fans’ desires. The casino also announced the debut of its ‘Bad Beat’ Jackpot.

Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto, operated by Great Canadian Entertainment, is the largest casino resort in Canada and boasts a 328,000-square-foot gaming floor. In addition to that, the resort also offers a 400-room hotel, indoor pool wellness and fitness area, several diners, private event and meeting space, and a 5000-person live entertainment venue backed by Live Nation.

Poker Room Now Fully Operational

The casino’s new and premium Great Canadian Toronto Poker Room started work in September under limited capacity and offers some exciting features, including a dedicated bar. In addition to that, the company noted that players at Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto, Great Blue Heron Casino and Hotel and Elements Casino Brantford will combine their ‘Bad Beat’ Jackpots.

The ‘Bad Beat’ Jackpot enables an extra level of entertainment to players’ poker experiences, as the progressive jackpot, powered by contribution from every qualifying hand played in the poker rooms, provides players with an additional chance to win. Since the jackpot is rising, so does the anticipation, which makes each round of cards even more exciting for punters.

As mentioned, the new poker amenity is located on a separate private floor, and there are electronic table games and slots for those who wait in queue. The room also provides both ‘No Limit’ and ‘Limit’ stakes, making it perfect for both novice and experienced players. For those seeking more exclusive space, there is also a semi-private area with higher-stakes games and final tables.

The casino’s poker room also plans on hosting larger poker tournaments, making it a poker destination in the future, where players will be able to test their skills against others in a more competitive environment. Guests of the gaming venue can now look forward to more exciting promotions and rewards at the resort for an engaging poker experience.

Great Canadian Entertainment remains devoted to responsible gambling, as its Toronto casino which opened in June 2023, comes with two PlaySmart Centres on the gaming floor. There players can find interactive tools and valuable responsible gambling resources, as well as information on how to enroll in the voluntary My PlayBreak program if they want to take a break from gaming.

Skipping the Lines

In September 2023, the premier operator of land-based casinos announced that online registration for its Great Canadian Rewards is now available in Ontario. Before being able to enjoy the corporation’s loyalty program and perks, users are required to digitally verify their identity using the Interac® document verification service and verify information such as name and date of birth.
