Baccarat, Blackjack, Poker, Roulette complete the gaming floor
February 28, 2019 – INNISFIL, ON – Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Limited (Gateway) unveiled 26 new live tables games at their Innisfil site today completing a $5 million renovation. In addition to over 1,000 slots, Gateway Casinos Innisfil now lets you choose your favourite tables games from Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette and Poker.
As part of the expansion, Gateway recruited 110 new positions to manage and operate the expanded gaming floor and held two job fairs to staff up for today’s grand opening.
“We’ve been working very hard these last few weeks to get staff prepared for today. The expansion to the gaming floor went seamlessly and I want to take this opportunity to thank our guests for their patience during the renovations. I think we can all agree it was worth it as we now have so much more to offer in excitement and entertainment with the addition of such a variety of table games,” said Gateway Casinos Innisifil General Manager, Tim O’Doherty.
To kick off the opening day festivities, Gateway held a Charity Blackjack Tournament inviting local radio and media personalities to participate along with Innisfil Mayor Lynn Dollin and members of the Innisfil Town Council. For beginners new to the game, staff conducted a “Learn to Play Blackjack” seminar for customers anxious to try their hand at the card table.
Mayor Dollin visited the site in January when Gateway erected new signage at the casino with the new name Gateway Casinos Innisfil. Dollin said of the completed renovations, “This is an exciting time, not just for Gateway Casinos, but for all of Innisfil. With the addition of 26 table games, Gateway has hired over 100 new staff members. Thank you for investing in our community and creating new job opportunities for our residents. We wish you a successful future here in Innisfil.”
Guests at Gateway Casinos Innisfil can also enjoy a hearty meal at the popular Getaway Restaurant and bar with a wide variety of dining and drinking options from savoury snacks, an all-day breakfast to a 10-ounce Triple AAA New York striploin.
