The company will add a poker room and 400-room hotel later this summer.

Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto has released new development plans to its newly opened $1bn facility. The group said it plans to open the Poker Room at Great Canadian Toronto during the summer, along with The Hotel at Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto, a 400-room hotel.

The Hotel at Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto is scheduled to open August 1, the company said in a release.

Great Canadian said in a statement, “As part of the Great Canadian Toronto’s commitment to responsible gambling, the property also features two PlaySmart Centres on the gaming floor, filled with engaging interactive tools and valuable responsible gambling resources available for all players, including information on how to participate in OLG’s voluntary My PlayBreak program if they choose to take a break from gambling.”

Once finished, the location’s new poker room will offer players access to 30 tables, along with slots and electronic table games, all contained within a private floor. The poker room will be home to larger poker tournaments as part of its main feature.

Another four tables will be set up in a semi-private area for poker experts who are looking for a more challenging game. These tables will offer high stakes games, as well as final tables.

Great Canadian recently opened its first phase of its latest Toronto destination last month. The new Vegas-style venue features 328,000 square feet of gaming space, as well as 145 table games and more than 4,800 slot machines.

The grand opening of Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto marked the 13th location the company has opened in Ontario. The group currently operates 12 casino resort locations within the province, including the recently opened Pickering Casino Resort Hotel, a 275-room resort just east of downtown Toronto.
