Elements Casino Flamboro Celebrates $100M to City of Hamilton Through OLG

HAMILTON, ON (July 5, 2023) – Have you ever wondered what $100,000,000 would look like?!  Elements Casino Flamboro showed its guests and community partners just that on June 29th as they hosted OLG, representatives from the City of Hamilton, and local community partners to celebrate a major community impact milestone — $100 million provided to the city as a gaming host community, paid through OLG since the facility opened in 1999.

These quarterly payments made to City of Hamilton are part of a Municipality Contribution Agreement (MCA) between OLG and the City, and are driven by gaming revenue at Elements Casino Flamboro.

“We’re very proud to join OLG and announce this significant milestone for the facility, OLG and the City of Hamilton,” said Craig Betts, Regional Vice President, GTA West Operations at Great Canadian Entertainment. “These MCA payments are a great outcome for the Hamilton community, as a result of gaming, and we look forward to continuing our focus on providing best-in-class service to our guests which, in turn, will provide a multitude of positive economic benefits for the City of Hamilton.”

City of Hamilton received over $5.3 million in municipal contribution agreement payments from OLG in FY22/23 ending March 31, 2023, an impressive 47% increase from the prior year.

Elements Casino Flamboro employs approximately 150 team members to operate the facility, in addition to the team members employed at the Flamboro Downs racetrack. Approximately 50% of team members employed at the casino are also residents of Hamilton.
