— A first-of-its-kind gaming and entertainment experience for sports enthusiasts in Ontario
TORONTO, Oct. 28, 2022 /CNW/ – Great Canadian Entertainment (“Great Canadian” or the “Company”) is proud to announce that effective today, guests can now make in-person sports bets at ten of its Ontario destinations.
Four of its destinations, including Great Blue Heron Casino & Hotel, Pickering Casino Resort, Elements Casino Brantford and Shorelines Casino Belleville, have launched dedicated sportsbook lounges, called Great Canadian Sportsbooks, where sports enthusiasts can watch live games, enjoy their favourite game-day food and beverage options, and place bets at one of several available kiosks. The lounges will also have team members available at peak times who can answer any questions related to the new services and take wagers from customers.
Six additional destinations in Ontario (Casino Woodbine, Shorelines Casino Peterborough, Shorelines Casino Thousand Islands, Elements Casino Mohawk, Elements Casino Grand River, and Elements Casino Flamboro) now feature sportsbook kiosks within existing gaming areas, where guests can place bets on various sporting events at a kiosk or through the casino cash cage.
“We remain laser-focused on enhancing the overall experience for our guests at our gaming and entertainment destinations, and the launch of sports betting at our Ontario properties is another demonstration of these efforts,” said Tony Rodio, Chief Executive Officer, Great Canadian Entertainment. “These onsite additions reflect Great Canadian’s commitment to investing in our facilities and the communities where we operate, as well as creating new jobs and additional revenue that will support local municipalities in Ontario,” added Rodio.
The launch of sports betting and Great Canadian Sportsbooks comes on the heels of the Company’s rebrand to Great Canadian Entertainment, as well as the launch of Great Canadian Rewards, the Company’s new player rewards program that is now offered across its 12 Ontario destinations.
“We would like to thank the OLG, AGCO and Ontario’s provincial government for supporting this important launch for the casino industry across Ontario,” concluded Rodio.
