Slot machines at Georgian Downs will be brought back to life this weekend.
Gateway Casinos is reopening almost all of its casinos in the province with limited hours – 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. – no table games, just the slots and only 50 people allowed in at a time. Due to the 50-customer capacity restrictions, properties will be open to invited My Club Rewards members only. Guests will be able to book their playtime online, check-in upon arrival and safely wait in their vehicles until the casino is ready for their entry.
“We are excited to be able to re-open our Ontario properties and welcome back some of our team members and customers. The health and well-being of our employees and guests is our top priority,” said Tony Santo, CEO at Gateway Casinos. “We look forward to fully re-opening and welcoming more of our guests back in the future as capacities are increased and restrictions are lifted.”
Maintaining a clean environment, says Gateway, is a year-round priority. It is regular practice to clean all hard surfaces, such as door handles and tables. Under the current environment, Gateway is being hyper-vigilant with its cleaning protocols to prevent the spread of transmittable illnesses, including COVID-19.
Casino Rama Resort will remain closed for the time being. Given the 50-person capacity restrictions, Gateway says it is not feasible to reopen a resort of its size.
