Atlantic Lottery - along with the support from all levels of Government and industry stakeholders - introduced a new era of gaming on PEI when it opened its Charlottetown facility in 2005 and its Summerside facility in 2009. The state-of-the-art properties in Charlottetown and Summerside offer slot machines and live Texas Hold’em Poker tables, along with the thrill of live and simulcast horse racing from major centres throughout North America.
Red Shores provides contemporary dining in the capital city at its Top of the Park restaurant while both facilities offer casual food and drink served at trackside patios and within a fun sports bar atmosphere. By targeting the tourism and agriculture sectors, this results in an economic impact of millions of dollars back to the local economy.
The harness racing history dates back to 1886 at Summerside and 1888 in Charlottetown. The sport and the people are recognized around the world for their talent, dedication and knowledge of the industry. In addition to hosting the Lobster Carnival Week at Summerside, Red Shores also hosts Old Home Week at Charlottetown that attracts close to 100,000 visitors to the grounds and 60,000 viewers on their new in-house broadcast, which is marketed and aimed at customers all around the world looking for new customer experiential packages.
