Niagara Falls attractions secure despite Toronto casino plans

No Comments

From Multibriefs.com:

After years of debate, a casino is coming to Toronto. Great Canadian Gaming Corp. and Brookfield Business Partners recently announced a partnership to upgrade the OLG Slots at Woodbine to a full casino and entertainment/hotel complex.

With plans for a “city within a city” set to run on a 22-year lease, the development is causing concern among some who worry that it could steal some of Niagara Falls’ thunder. However, Niagara Falls’ tourism initiatives shouldn’t be counted out just yet — they have a few new offerings on the horizon.

From Niagara This Week:

Fallsview Casino Resort is flush with positivity thanks to being recognized with five Certificates of Excellence from the travel website TripAdvisor.

Certificates were awarded for the casino’s hotel; its R5, Ponte Vecchio, and 21 Club Steak and Seafood restaurants; and for the casino itself as an attraction.

Certificates of Excellence are awarded to hospitality businesses that have earned great traveller reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. They are based on quality, quantity, and timeliness of customer reviews submitted on the site over a 12-month period. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews, and have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

Woodbine casino ‘tough news’ for Niagara Falls

From the Niagara Falls Review:

A world-class casino at Woodbine Racetrack in north Etobicoke is bad news for Niagara Falls.

“But, you know, thank God, we have the falls here, the wine country and all kinds of great, other attractions and amenities that make people from Toronto want to get out of Toronto, and come and enjoy a different atmosphere,” said Niagara Falls Tourism chairman Wayne Thomson.

Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. announced Tuesday the winner of a competitive bidding process to take over the running of OLG Slots at Woodbine Racetrack.

The winning bidder, Ontario Gaming GTA, a partnership of Great Canadian Gaming Corp. and Brookfield Business Partners, will also operate OLG Slots at Ajax Downs and Great Blue Heron Casino.

The announcement is expected to clear the way for a casino in Toronto.

Thomson said “it was only a matter of time” before a casino was announced for Canada’s largest city.
