Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto

Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto Announces Exciting Developments: Opening of New Poker Room this Summer & The Hotel Opening its Doors on August 1


TORONTO (July 6, 2023) –
The new Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto (“Great Canadian Toronto”) is proud to unveil the latest developments at the landmark $1 billion property. Great Canadian Toronto will introduce the Poker Room at Great Canadian Toronto later this summer, and the opening of the brand-new 400-room The Hotel at Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto on August 1. Reservations for The Hotel are now open and can be made by visiting Great Canadian Toronto’s website.

The first phase of Great Canadian Toronto opened on June 20, unveiling a new gaming floor featuring 4,800 slot machines, 145 table games, a variety of dining options and a 3,800-space parkade. The opening of the poker room and hotel are the next significant milestones in the destination’s development, followed in the coming months with the opening of a state-of-the-art 5,000-person entertainment venue, additional dining options and retail.

As part of the Great Canadian Toronto’s commitment to responsible gambling, the property also features two PlaySmart Centres on the gaming floor, filled with engaging interactive tools and valuable responsible gambling resources available for all players, including information on how to participate in OLG’s voluntary My PlayBreak program if they choose to take a break from gambling.

The new poker room will cater to the market’s vibrant poker community. When complete, the poker room will offer 30 tables on a completely private floor with electronic table games and slots available for those waiting and ‘No Limit’ and ‘Limit’ stakes at varying levels, setting the stage for thrilling gameplay. The addition of larger poker tournaments will also be a main feature in the new poker room.

For players seeking an elevated gaming experience, the poker room will include four tables situated in a semi-private area. This exclusive section will cater to higher stakes games and final tables, creating an intimate setting for discerning players.

The introduction of poker at Great Canadian Toronto will also provide exciting opportunities for poker players at Great Blue Heron Casino and Hotel (“Great Blue Heron”). Both properties will offer entry into some of Canada’s largest poker tournaments, further solidifying their positions as premier poker destinations. Additionally, with combined “Bad Beat” Jackpots connecting players from both Great Canadian Toronto and Great Blue Heron, the properties will aim to establish themselves as a leading destination for both local and international poker enthusiasts.
