Great Canadian Toronto boosts premier poker destination status via new poker room

The $1bn resort will offer entry into some of Canada's largest poker tournaments

Fresh from launching Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto last month, Great Canadian Entertainment has announced the newest addition to its Vegas-style casino – a poker room.

The resort officially opened its doors on June 20, equipped with 4,800 slot machines and 145 table games on its new gaming floor as part of plans to ‘reimagine’ casino gaming in the city.

Now, less than three weeks later, Great Canadian Entertainment has unveiled its latest development – a poker room ‘to cater to the market’s vibrant poker community’.

Alongside Great Blue Heron Casino and Hotel, Great Canadian Toronto will offer entry into some of Canada’s largest poker tournaments, further solidifying their positions as ‘premier poker destinations’.

Additionally, with combined ‘Bad Beat’ jackpots connecting players from both properties, there will be a focus on establishing themselves as a leading destination for both local and international poker enthusiasts.

The poker room at Great Canadian Toronto, meanwhile, will offer 30 tables on a private floor with electronic table games and slots available and ‘No Limit’ and ‘Limit’ stakes at varying levels.

Furthermore, for players seeking an ‘elevated gaming experience’, the poker room will include four tables situated in a semi-private area.

As previously reported, the resort is expected to generate over $500m in positive economic impact to the Toronto economy.

Meanwhile, announcing the news via a press release today, Great Canadian Entertainment also highlighted its commitment to promote responsible gambling, with the $1bn resort featuring two PlaySmart Centres on the gaming floor and information provided on how to participate in OLG’s voluntary My PlayBreak program.
