Casino Niagara is just steps away from the famous falls. When you walk out of the casino through the lower-level doors and cross the avenue, you will be at the railing. This big casino attracts people visiting the falls and people who simply want to enjoy a wide range of gambling. The resort is accessible from the Buffalo and Toronto airports, as well as the Niagara District Airport, which is just 20 minutes away.
Head into the casino and you will find a large gambling floor covering 95,000 square feet. There are more than 1,300 slot machines across the two levels, mixing penny and small denomination games with high-limit action. There are 40 table games featuring all your favourites, as well as a poker room with an additional 26 tables. Sports betting (on multiple games) is also available — covering football, baseball, hockey and college basketball.
On this page, you will find all you need to know ahead of a trip to Casino Niagara. First, there is a brief overview of the casino, then an in-depth look at all the gambling options. Next, we detail the Player’s Advantage Club loyalty program. The numerous dining and entertainment options appear at the end of the page.
Casino Niagara opened in 1996 on the former site of the Maple Leaf Village Amusement Park. When the casino launched, it was originally planned as a temporary facility. A quarter of a century later, it is still going strong in the same location.
The casino was only the second to open in Ontario and was the first in the province to feature electronic roulette. In 2017, Casino Niagara completed a renovation at the cost of $7 million. As of 2019, Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment took over the day-to-day running of the casino.
Within the huge slot range, there is a mix of classic and modern games. They include a range of denominations. More than 350 of the 1,300 slots feature large progressive jackpots. They include many of the best-known slot titles from providers such as Aristocrat, IGT and Scientific Games.
Multiple video poker games are also available. They include favourites like Jacks or Better and Deuces Wild.
Here are some popular games that are featured on Casino Niagara’s website and social media pages:
There are nine tables games available, including a series of casino poker variations. Classics such as blackjack and roulette have multiple rules/stakes options. Here is a list of the current games:
Alongside the standard table games, you can also enjoy electronic games. These are “Dynasty” games — which mix electronic betting with a live dealer/host. You can enjoy both Dynasty Blackjack and Dynasty Baccarat at Casino Niagara.
The poker room has 26 tables and is open 24 hours a day. This is one of the best regarded and biggest rooms in the area. It features a spectacular view of the falls and offers both high- and low-limit cash games. There is a busy regular tournament schedule, and the room also hosts regular poker tournament events with bigger buy-in games.
You can enjoy multi-sports wagering at the cashier’s cage, which is located on level three beside the PAC (Players Advantage Club) desk. Here you can place the following four bet types across football, baseball, hockey and college basketball:
In line with national laws, you will need to bet on a minimum of two outcomes.
The Players Advantage Club is a loyalty program that rewards you based on your play — head to the booth on level three to sign up.
Membership is free, and you earn points every time you play. For every $20 coin-in at the slots, you earn one loyalty point, and when you have 100 points you can redeem them for $10 in cash back.
As well as the cash-back rewards, there are many other benefits, and they increase as you move through the five levels. Members start with the standard blue Players Advantage Club card. As you accumulate points, you move through gold and platinum levels. Having reached platinum, you could then be invited into premium and elite levels based on your play.
Here is a list of just some of the benefits you can enjoy at the various levels:
The same rewards program is used at the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara. This means you can earn points and redeem them at both resorts. You can browse all your details online with the “Interactive MYPAC Section.” Here you will get marketing offers and specials, including entertainment and hotel offers — as well as casino game deals.
There are three main dining locations at the casino:
