Toronto officially has live gaming tables.
The Great Canadian Gaming Corporation announced that its subsidiary, One Toronto Gaming (“OTG”), has received the necessary municipal zoning approvals from the City of Toronto to offer table games at Casino Woodbine.
And as a result of the approval, there are now 50 “live dealer” table games at Casino Woodbine.
This marks the first time that live dealer table games are available in the GTA.
According to a release by the Gaming Corporation, OTG has also added a diverse mix of new electronic table and “stadium style” gaming positions that can accommodate up to 331 players in addition to the live dealer games.

An additional 50 live dealer table games and over 300 slot machines are anticipated by the end of the year, adding jobs in the province, says the company’s president.
“This is another important achievement for One Toronto Gaming, made possible by the hard work from our team in collaboration with stakeholders including OLG, our regulators, and the City of Toronto,” stated Rod Baker, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
“This not only is a significant step in the expansion and overall development of Casino Woodbine, but this additional gaming amenity has generated over 400 new jobs, and will create another 300 by the end of 2018.”
Earlier this year, Toronto City Council approved expanded gaming at the Woodbine Racetrack.
