Great Canadian is opening the new casino in Durham Region today (July 26)
Canada.- Great Canadian Gaming Corporation has announced the opening of Pickering Casino Resort, located in Durham Region, Ontario. The company says the venue will create 600 jobs in the first phase of the opening.
Once Covid-19 health and safety restrictions are lifted, the property will feature around 2,400 slot machines, just under 100 live table games, around 140 live dealer stadium gaming terminals and 10 dining options.
In the meantime, it’s opening the gaming floor and food and beverage amenities with reduced occupancy levels to align with physical distancing requirements.
Terrance Doyle, the Company’s interim CEO, said: “The opening of the casino at Pickering Casino Resort is yet another step towards our company’s recovery from the impact of COVID-19 and means another 600 jobs created in the Durham Region in this first phase of the property’s opening.
“This will be Great Canadian’s 25th property currently operating in Canada and the first casino resort opened in Ontario in 16 years, and I would like to thank all the hard work invested by our team, our contractors and other important stakeholders who have helped us achieve this incredible milestone.”
