Canada is the go-to destination for many Americans and for tourists all other the world. This is in part thanks to our liberal attitude towards gambling, and to some of the best casinos on the continent. These are located all over the country with casinos in every state. With that in mind, and with so much choice on offer, just where are the best casinos in the country?
River Rock Casino Resort
Located in British Columbia, on the shores of the Fraser River, this is the largest venue in Western Canada, with 70,000 square feet of space to enjoy. The River Rock has one of the best VIP rooms in the country, known as the Dogwood Club. This is where you will find the best high-stakes action in Canada, so take plenty of cash.
The main casino has 900 slot machines, with new ones being added all of the new. There is also a poker room that attracts some of the best professionals and the loosest amateurs in the region. The only downside about this resort is that for its size, it has a fairly limited number of tables, with just 14 of them in total. Still, you can play blackjack, roulette and baccarat, and as most of the action is on the slots and in the poker room, there is usually plenty of space.
The River Rock has a restaurant and a racetrack. There is also a bar and lounge, and a place to watch some live entertainment.
Caesars Windsor Hotel & Casino
Located on the border with the US and just a stone’s throw from Detroit, this casino attracts a lot of attention from both sides of the border. There are two tall towers in this venue, with over 750 suites and rooms to cater for all budgets and tastes. There is also a fitness center, an entertainment complex and restaurants. This is a great place to drop by and have some fun, even if you’re not into gambling.
There is a poker room at the Caesars that has over a dozen tables and gets a lot of action, with poker pros from the US coming here on occasion to test their skills. There is also a huge number of gaming tables and slot machines, and you can even order a drink from the slot machine and have it delivered to you, which means you can play uninterrupted through the evening.
Located in Ontario, just like the Caesars above, this is a hotspot for tourists who flock here to look at the iconic Niagara Falls and to take in the rest of the natural scenery. This is a perfect place for a big and luxurious venue such as this, and it gets a lot of action from the foot traffic that passes by Niagara Falls every season.
The casino itself has over 1,500 slot machines, with all of the latest games and technologies included. This dwarfs many other casinos in the States, and they have more slots than some of the bigger casinos located elsewhere in the country. There is close to 100,000 square feet of space here, with around 40 gaming tables offering everything from blackjack and craps to more.
The Casino Niagara also has a poker room, as is common throughout the country. There are 12 tables in this room and plenty of cash games and tournaments to enjoy. There is also a lot of entertainment at the Casino Niagara, with stand-up comedy, live music and more.
Casino de Montreal
This is one of the best, if not the best casinos in the province of Quebec. The Casino de Montreal can be found across from the Old Port of Montreal, with 5 floors and plenty of action to be found. The Casino de Montreal is actually one of the largest casinos in the world and is a breathtaking site to behold. If you’re staying in the province then be sure to drop by or even to stay here, as there is much to see and do and you can also take in the best gaming action that Canada has to offer.
There are more than 3,000 slot machines in total at the Casino de Montreal, with jackpots galore. There are also over 100 gaming tables, with more choice of card games and number games than any other casino in Canada. There is also a separate poker room in the Casino de Montreal, which includes around 20 poker tables and some of the hottest action around. You can make it here for as little as $20 a tournament, but many of them cost a little more to get into and there are also high-roller cash games and sit and goes to take part in.
The Casino de Montreal has a great loyalty club for regular players, so be sure to signup to this if you plan on returning to the casino time and time again. Even if you’re just staying there for a short holiday, it could be worth checking out their loyalty club, as you will be spending a lot of time on the casino floor.
The Casino de Montreal also has four restaurants onsite, as well as some lounges. You can enjoy a wide range of cuisines and drinks, perfect for any time of day.
River Cree Casino Resort
Another casino located in British Columbia, the River Cree Casino Resort is located in the west of Edmonton. This offers something a little different, perfect for high-rollers seeking luxury and for hockey fans, due to its full-featured hockey center. There is still no shortage of slots and tables though, with more than 1,000 of the former and about 40 of the latter.
There is also an off-track betting room and a high stakes poker room, as well as close to 250 rooms where guests can enjoy the best hospitality in B.C.
