Ontario Casino Suspends Operations

To stem the unprecedented case of the situation, Ontario announced Monday that it was returning to phase two of its business reopening plan. This means the state’s casino properties will have to close until at least January 26, 2022. Over 28 gaming properties at the Ontario Lottery and gaming companies have now suspended work.

In order to spread the severe hospitalization rate in the province, the province will close many businesses, including casinos, and will take effect from January 5, 2021, and will take effect until at least January 26, 2022, and next week, health authorities will check the situation and discuss the possibility of further extension.

OLG representative Tony Bitonti noted that the recent closures apply to all land-based gaming-related venues, including slots, gaming tables and electronic games. However, he reminded that the Crown Agency’s 10,000 lottery retailers in the province will remain open during that time, meaning that people can still purchase lottery tickets.

In addition, OLG’s Prize Center in Toronto will remain functional to pay lottery jackpots, but will only operate on an app point basis. Those who win between C$1,000 and C$49,999 are advised to submit a payment request online or by mail. Mr. Vuitti also said that while offline casinos are closed, OLG offers numerous i-casino services on olg.ca .

Prior to the casino’s initial closure in March 2020, OLG employed more than 4,000 individuals across Ontario’s gaming facilities. When Ontario Public Health allowed it to reopen in July 2021, the facility recalled about 1,000 employees. At the time, gaming facilities were allowed to operate in 50% of all guests, helping to recover from the closure.

Last year, Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati noted that casino closures in the region had hurt the city, losing nearly C$20 million in revenue. According to him, the number did not include the economic impact of the 2020 shutdown, which also negatively affected the local economy and budget.

The management of Caesars Windsor Casino also announced the impending closure, following the local government’s announcement of a second phase of the local reopening plan. Starting at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, the building will remain closed until at least January 26, 2022, but whether the period will be extended further will be determined later.

Casino Llama has also suspended its service and will be closed for many customers. A spokesperson for Gateway Casino & Entertainment, which operates the casino, said the safety of both employees and customers is of utmost importance to the company.
