Gateway Casinos & Entertainment has officially opened its Cascades Casino North Bay property following a $41m investment. 

Said to create 200 new jobs, Cascades is said to feature 300 slots and six table games, as well as 10 virtual tables. In addition, the property will include Gateway’s restaurant brand – Match Eatery & Public House. 

“This is an exciting and long-awaited day for North Bay, Gateway Casinos and all our customers and employees,” explained Tony Santo, CEO at Gateway.

“This new attraction is testimony to the resiliency and determination of many over the past two years as the pandemic created many challenges. 

“Today we unveil a state-of-the-art entertainment destination that families and friends can enjoy from all around the region.”

Gateway’s North Bay property follows on from its other suite of assets under the Cascade brand in Cham, Ontario and Langley, Kamloops and Penticton, with the most recent resort said to be built around the design inspiration of ‘Play’.

Furthermore, Gateway also emphasised its commitment to responsible gambling as being “integral” to how the company operates in Ontario, including OLG’s PlaySmart program.

A grand opening event, with an official opening ceremony of the new Cascades Casino North Bay, is planned for later this spring.
