Casino Niagara is celebrating 25 years of gaming action! 

The casino first opened its doors on Dec. 9, 1996, and has since welcomed more than 100 million visitors. Situated on Falls Avenue across from Niagara Falls, the casino draws in millions of guests each year.

Over 690 casino employees will celebrate a quarter-century of Casino Niagara’s gaming operations this month.

“We’re incredibly proud to be celebrating this milestone anniversary, not just internally but with the community as a whole,” said Richard Taylor, president of Niagara Casinos. 

“We realize what a privilege it is to maintain a successful business for 25 years and would like to express our sincere appreciation to our associates for their loyal support and to our valued patrons for making Casino Niagara a premier entertainment destination.”

Silver anniversary 

Anniversary celebrations featured a special menu at LEV2L (Dec. 8-11) and a social media contest on Instagram (Dec. 6-13).

“The last year and a half presented challenges none of us could have predicted,” Taylor added. “Our team of great people worked tirelessly throughout the closure to ensure that when we were given the green light to re-open, we could do so in a way that had the health and safety of our guest’s top of mind without sacrificing the high level of service they were used to.” 

“We always knew our team was great, but the way they came together to support our re-opening in July was truly unbelievable.”

In partnership with the Niagara Falls Illumination Board, Niagara Falls was lit in green and gold the night of Dec. 9.

$48m-worth investments

Since its opening, Casino Niagara has undergone several upgrades. It includes a $7m investment in 2017 and  $12m in renovations in 2005

In total, nearly $48 million in capital expenditures and improvements have been invested into Casino Niagara in the last decade.  

Today, the casino is home to two action-packed floors with 1,300 slot machines, 40 gaming tables and a Poker Room.

In addition to that, there’s a diverse mix of restaurants and dining options, including LEV2L Sports Bar & Entertainment.

Casino Niagara supported over 170 charities and non-profits within the region through financial donations and employee volunteer hours.

Each year, dedicated associates contribute with more than 3,000 volunteer hours and $162,000 in fundraising.

As a corporation, Niagara Casinos remain the region’s largest commercial employer, with nearly 4,000 workers.
