Great Canadian Entertainment has confirmed the highly anticipated inauguration of its Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto with the opening of its brand-new, modern casino and multiple restaurants at 5:00 p.m. on June 20, 2023.
This landmark development will revolutionize Toronto’s entertainment landscape, creating an exhilarating experience for gaming enthusiasts and entertainment lovers alike.
With transformative architecture, the new, modern Great Canadian Toronto encompasses a staggering 328,000 square feet of gaming space, including over 4,800 slot machines and 145 table games, solidifying its position as the largest casino in Canada and one of the largest in North America. With an unparalleled variety of gaming experiences, exclusive VIP rooms, and state-of-the-art sports betting kiosks, Great Canadian Toronto promises an entertainment experience like no other.
Situated adjacent to Woodbine Racetrack, this all-encompassing resort will seamlessly integrate a modern, Vegas-style casino, a 400-room hotel, 5,000-person live entertainment venue, and an array of exceptional on-site dining options. Great Canadian Toronto will deliver superior gaming, entertainment, and hospitality experiences, all within its impressive 33-acre domain, conveniently located near the interchange of Highways 401 and 427.
With an investment of approximately $1bn, Great Canadian Toronto is one of the largest private sector projects currently in Ontario and will generate over $500m in economic impact.
“We are thrilled to announce that our highly anticipated new casino will open on June 20. With meticulous attention to detail, state-of-the-art amenities, and a commitment to exceptional guest experiences, our landmark entertainment resort is a game-changer in Toronto,” said Matthew Anfinson, CEO, Great Canadian Entertainment.
Consistent with Great Canadian Entertainment’s commitment to responsible gaming, the company, along with its partner, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, remain focused on promoting safe play to keep the fun in the game. As part of that commitment, the destination will feature a PlaySmart Centre on the gaming floor, filled with engaging interactive tools and valuable responsible gambling resources available for all players.
Casino Woodbine will continue to operate without any interruption until the grand debut of the new Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto. This seamless transition ensures that guests will continue to enjoy gaming experiences until the new facility opens.
