Derek Tierney, General Manager of Playtime Casino Hanover welcomed Gateway’s CAO Brad Bardua, Hanover Mayor, Sue Paterson and OLG Vice President of Land Based Gaming, Bruce McKenzie to the newly renovated casino as they cut the ribbon and commemorated the opening of this fantastic new entertainment destination for the Bruce Peninsula and Huron County.
Bardua said, “I am thrilled to be here and celebrate the grand opening of Playtime Casino Hanover and Gateway’s investment into the community of Hanover. Congratulations to the entire team and all of our community partners who worked so hard to make this possible. I know that this property will provide our guests with an entertainment experience second to none.”
Gateway proudly announced that the Playtime Casino Hanover employees selected the Hanover and District Hospital Foundation as the charity partner for the grand opening. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of local brewery McLean’s Farmhouse Blonde Lager and MATCH’s Turkey Brie and Apple Clubhouse sandwich will be donated to the hospital foundation.
The opening of Playtime Casino Hanover is the latest announcement by Gateway following the news last week of a location for a brand-new Gateway Casino in Wasaga Beach and the opening of a new $36 million Cascades Casino in Chatham-Kent this July. Gateway recently launched its first Starlight Casino in Point Edward, Ontario after a $26 million renovation to that site. Last month, Gateway added 26 live table games to the Gateway Casinos Innisfil and is proposing to build a new casino and entertainment complex in North Bay.
A commitment to responsible gambling is integral to how Gateway operates in Ontario including OLG’s PlaySmart program. All Gateway properties in BC and Ontario hold RG Check accreditation. Together with OLG and other government partners, Gateway will continue to implement responsible gambling initiatives at all properties across Canada.
