Great Canadian Entertainment has unveiled its new 18-table poker room at Pickering Casino Resort. The room is on the third floor of the hotel and offers guests 20,000 square feet of gaming space.

The poker room will be available to players 24 hours a day. Players will have access to 16 traditional tables, along with two private high-stakes rooms.

Guests can also enjoy a tableside bar and food delivery from The District, as well as the resort’s food hall.

Company EVP Michael Kim said the new addition was designed to give poker enthusiasts the option of traditional and high-stakes play, while offering extra amenities.

He commented, “We are thrilled to introduce the poker room as the latest addition to our world-class offerings.

“We’re raising the stakes with another exciting amenity, joining our modern casino, Sportsbook and The Arena, highlighting our dedication to providing our guests with an immersive gaming and live entertainment experience.”

Pickering Casino Resort features a 2,500-seat theatre and event space, as well as a Great Canadian Sportsbook and 96,000 square feet of casino space. Players have access to more than 90 live table games, 140 deal terminals and 2,200 slot machines.

Great Canadian recently opened its first phase of its latest Toronto destination. 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.
