History of the Elements Casino Brantford
The Elements Casino Brantford launched in 1999. Previous names of the casino have been ‘The Brantford Charity Casino’ and ‘OLG Casino Brantford’. The casino is located near the Sanderson Theatre for performing arts. In 2018 it was announced that the OLG Casino Brantford, along with several other casinos in Ontario would now be operated by the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (GCGC) and would change its name to the current Elements brand. The site is operated by the GCGC on behalf of Ontario Gaming West GTA L.P.
Brantford has some history — this city is famous for being the hometown of Alexander Graham Bell, who invented his first telephone at his father’s house. This has been preserved and is now known as the Bell Homestead.
