If you’re looking for the best online casinos in Canada [valid where legal], it’s not too difficult to find them: the internet is full of hundreds of options to choose from. But when it comes to land-based casinos, finding the best is not an easy task. A good casino offers not only games but also entertainment and ensures that its customers have an unforgettable experience. To help you out, we’ve reviewed all Canadian land-based casinos and selected the best ones: you can see a list of them below.
Casino de Montreal
This is the largest casino in Canada: it is approximately 525,000 sq ft big. This is actually a structure consisting of three different buildings, and this is just the size of the casino part; other buildings are used for different purposes. In the casino section, there are over 3,000 slot machines, 100 table games, speed lottery rooms, and virtual betting games. Unlike Las Vegas casinos, it’s a place with lots of windows and natural lighting, plus it has four different restaurants, multiple bars, and its own private cabaret.
About 2,800 people work at the casino, which was opened in 1993. One of its most important features is that it is open 24/7: you can gamble whenever you want. Casino de Montreal is a Quebec government initiative and is visited by approximately 750,000 people each year. Cabaret du Casino is one of the most entertaining shows here, and there are also activities such as stand-up comedy, music, and theatre.
There are many casinos in the Niagara area, but this one is one of the biggest (and oldest). Casino Niagara was opened in 1996 and houses 1,300 slot machines and 40 table games. There are also high-roller and low-roller poker tables inside. The casino has three different restaurants, two bars, and multiple cafés: Chill Bar has a more relaxing atmosphere, while Lev2l Bar is almost always more crowded and hosts the most entertainment options. Parties and shows at Casino Niagara are organized weekly, with a different option each week.
The casino is managed by the Ontario government, and the only downside is that it’s designed solely as a casino. In other words, it doesn’t have a separate hotel section. However, if you want to stay, you can choose any of the hotels also managed by the Ontario government, which are just a few streets away.
Most of the casinos in Canada are owned by local governments, but this one is an exception. Caesars Windsors, as the name suggests, belongs to the famous Caesars Entertainment group and is the place to visit if you want to experience “Las Vegas” in Canada. This is a very large and magnificent casino. There are 2,600 slot machines and 95 table games in its main building. If you are a high-roller, it is possible to find games with a limit of 50,000 CAD.
But casino games aren’t the only thing on offer: a different event is held every week in a 5,000-seat theatre (called the Colosseum). Music, dance, comedy – world-renowned artists take the stage here. Caesars Windsors also has a shopping mall and seven different restaurants.
River Cree Resort & Casino
River Cree has two different casino sections for smokers and non-smokers. It hosts a total of 1,350 slot machines, 10 lottery terminals, and 40 table games. The casino part is open from 9.30 AM to 03.00 AM. Like many other casinos, they also have their own private poker rooms. There is a promotion for almost every game, and if you plan to play here, we recommend that you take advantage of all of them. Especially slot machine promotions compete with online casinos.
The showroom here is called “The Venue.” This is a hall with a capacity of 2,500 people and can be used independently of the casino. The Venue hosts many different events. You can watch an MMA match one evening and listen to a concert the other evening. Boxing matches are also held from time to time. River Cree also has its own ice hockey league called “Twin Rinks.”
St. Eugene Golf & Resort & Casino
St. Eugene uses the motto “casino of the Rockies” and has the distinction of being one of the oldest entertainment venues in Canada. It even has its own RV Park. If you want to spend a pleasant summer vacation, this will be one of the most suitable options. The casino part is not very big and contains 210 slot machines in total. In table games, it offers its own special betting options (e.g., King’s Bounty in blackjack) and allows you to play very interesting variants such as Fast Action Hold’em.
There are two different restaurants in St. Euegene, “The 19th Hole” and “Numa.” The RV Park offers events such as wine tasting, camper barbeque, and legends nights. Legends Nights is quite an interesting event: the elders of a local tribe, the Ktunaxa, participate and tell the stories of their culture. The casino organizes almost all of its big events outdoors and around the big campfire.
