If you’re in Toronto or around Toronto and you’re looking for a good joint to gamble, eat and have some fun, here are some great places to start:
Situated right next to the graceful Niagara falls, the Casino Niagara has approximately 95,000 feet of space packed with 1,500 slot machines, 40 gaming tables and a Poker Room with 12 tables. In addition to that, the casino has a separate sports section with over 20 HDTV screens where you can watch and bet on professional and college sports live as they unfold. The Market Buffet is available for some snacks and drinks. In case you prefer steak, Lucky’s Steakhouse is also in the vicinity of this casino.
Measuring a whooping 200,000 square feet, the Fallsview Casino is over twice as large as Casino Niagara, and with reason. It has over 3,000 slots and video poker machines in denominations ranging from one penny to 1000 dollars. The casino also has over 130 gaming tables where you can participate in games such as Baccarat, Poker, Craps, Caribbean Stud and Pai Gow Poker. On select dates, the casino holds tournaments exclusively for casino games.
Casino Rama is about a two hours’ drive from Toronto but it’s definitely worth the trip. The casino hosts over 2,500 slot machines and 110 gaming tables that let you play a variety of games ranging from Blackjack to Craps. You can never run out of eating options here as the venue holds 10 restaurants. There are also live performances almost on a daily basis.
The Ex is a great place to visit if you want to have fun but safely remain within the limits of the city. The CNE Casino offers you the chance to play games ranging from Blackjack to Spanish 21 and 3-card poker. However, it’s usually opened for a small period – about a month, every summer.
