Three years after the first announcement, Pickering Casino and Resort opened in the Greater Toronto area in 2018.
The site is loaded by 75% due to restrictions on Covid-19 .
As soon as everything gets better, there will be 2,400 slot machines, about 100 live table games, 140 stadium gaming terminals with live dealers and 10 restaurants on the site.
Terrence Doyle, interim Chief Executive Officer of Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, stressed that the casino can contribute to the company’s growth.
“The opening of the casino at Pickering Casino Resort is another step towards the recovery of our company after the impact of Covid-19. It will be the 25th Great Canadian hotel currently operating in Canada and the first casino resort opened in Ontario in 16 years.”
At the first stage of opening, 600 jobs were created at the site. After the construction is completed, it is expected to create 10,000 jobs and tax revenues of $ 600 million.
