Located in Ontario, Windsor is the southernmost city in Canada. This delightful little city has been attracting tourists from across Canada and the United States for many years, and although attractions such as Little Italy, the Sculpture Park and Ojibway Prairie all see hordes of tourists pass through every year, it is the Caesars Windsor Casino that the majority are there to see. This is not just the biggest and best casino in Windsor and Ontario, it is the jewel in Canada’s gambling crown, one of the venues that started the gambling revolution in this country and the one that stands as the biggest and most expensive casino to this day.
Operated by Caesars Entertainment, who used to be known as Harrah’s Entertainment and own casinos and poker rooms from Nevada to Florida and from the UK to North Africa, it was first built in 1994 when it was known by a different name. It became the casino that it is today in 1998, and then, in 2005, it became something else entirely when half a billion dollars was spent on improving it and turning it into a grand and spectacular casino that could rival anything in Las Vegas and Macau.
The casino floor is a seemingly endless stretch of slot machines, table games and more. There are progressive jackpots of several million dollars on offer, including Mighty Millionaire, Nexus Progressive and Red Hot Jackpot, all of which can be won for just a few cents. There is also a plush poker room, with Stud, Draw and Hold’em games available, and with blinds that begin at just $3/$6. They also host many tournaments, including satellites to the World Series of Poker Main Event, a brand that Caesars Entertainment also own. If you’re worried about taking a horrible bad beat and having your holiday ruined, then don’t, because at Caesars Windsor you’ll find some of the biggest Bad Beat Jackpots in the country.
If you tire of gambling, then there are plenty of shows to enjoy within the resort, including ones that can be enjoyed by all of the family. The Colosseum theatre, located onsite, can accommodate over 5.000 people and showcases some of the best talent from across the continent, with everything from singers to dancers and comedians adorning this illustrious stage.
If you are looking for a place to stay, then why not stay within the resort? Caesars Windsor has won the AAA Four Diamond award, and has over 750 rooms that mix luxury with affordability. Resorts like these make far more money from the casino downstairs than they do from the rooms upstairs, and when it comes to hospitality its all about allowing players to stay onsite so that they will gamble more. Therefore, some of the cheapest luxury you will find anywhere in the world is in casino hotels, and the Caesars Windsor is no exception. If you plan on staying during the peak holiday season, then you should try and book in advance — there may be a lot of rooms, but this is a popular resort and they can fill-up very quickly.
