When most people think of casino gaming, the cities that come to mind are Las Vegas, Atlantic City, maybe Lake Tahoe or one of the big European casino hubs. But Canada deserves a place among the great casino gaming venues. Canada’s sheer size and the variety of casino experiences to be had mean Canada offers a gaming product unlike any other. From smaller casinos in British Columbia to the many giant casino properties in the Niagara Falls region, there are a huge variety of casino experiences to be had in Canada.
Gaming in one’s home country has great advantages – shorter travel time, your own currency being used and people that talk your language and understand your culture. Canadian gaming is the way to go.
Here is a short list of the largest, the best-known, and the most popular casino properties in Canada. Take a look at the list—from the exclusively French-speaking and beautiful Casino de Montreal to the remote casino gaming experience in Saskatchewan, there is no other country in the world with a more diverse roster of gaming adventures.
Casino Nova Scotia in Halifax, Nova Scotia
The largest casino in Nova Scotia, Casino Nova Scotia is open 24 hours a day. Featuring four restaurants and one of the largest slot machine rooms in the nation, Casino Nova Scotia accepts a wide range of currencies.
Casino de Montreal in Montreal, Quebec
French is the language spoken here, but with cold hard cash on the line, it doesn’t matter what language you speak. Casino de Montreal is one of the largest casino properties in all of North America. Poker players love the wide variety of games played in Casino de Montreal’s large poker room.
Caesars Windsor in Windsor, Ontario
Outside of Casino de Montreal, Caesars Windsor has no Canadian competition in terms of size and game variety. A stone’s throw from the United States, Caesars Windsor caters to players from all over the world, with a currency exchange right on the gaming floor.
Casino Niagara in Niagara Falls, Ontario
Ten restaurants and bars and well over 3,000 games available makes Casino Niagara a can’t-miss gaming Mecca for casino enthusiasts from both sides of the Canadian border.
Club Regent Casino in Winnipeg, Manitoba
What Club Regent Casino lacks in restaurants and other amenities it more than makes up for in game variety. Gamblers can choose from nearly 2,000 slot machines or head over to the poker room where any number of poker games are played regularly.
Casino Regina in Regina, Saskatchewan
Casino Regina is a slot player’s paradise, but don’t expect much in the way of casino game variety. A surprisingly large poker room is tucked in behind the banks of slots, a hidden gem for Canadian poker gamblers.
Cash Casino in Calgary, Alberta
Yet another little-known poker room sits in the very middle of Cash Casino, with nearly a dozen poker tables operating 24 hours a day. The three restaurants and bars at Cash Casino makes it a great place to unwind.
Casino Yellowhead in Edmonton, Alberta
A twenty-four hour poker room makes Casino Yellowhead a favorite stop for Canadian poker junkies.
McPhillips Street Station Casino in Winnipeg, Manitoba
This laid-back casual dress casino is the crown jewel of the Manitoba gaming scene. Over 2,000 video poker and slot machines almost make you forget that the McPhillips Street poker room is practically non-existent.
Casino of the Rockies in Cranbrook, British Columbia
The largest casino in British Columbia, Casino of the Rockies is most famous for its naturally beautiful setting. Don’t expect much more than an 18 hole golf course and a few banks of slots, but as casino gaming in BC goes, Casino of the Rockies is the cream of the crop.
