After getting hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, Ontario is following a well-planned framework to implement an economic reopening plan to normalize operations and revenue flow. As per its stage 3 framework, Casinos are allowed to reopen given that they adhere to safety measures.
Great Canadian Gaming Corporation has announced the opening of all of its eleven properties on September 28. With this announcement, Elements Casino in Brantford is also restarting its operations on the same day.
In the wake of Covid-19, there have been some health and safety guidelines for the casinos to be operational. The total number of guests allowed in the casino is limited to 50 at a time. As of now, only slot machines in use will be operational and there still will be a restriction on table games. The food and beverage outlets in the casino will also remain closed.
In the upcoming weeks, there will be an online reservation tool available on the main page of Elements’ website. All the guests who are willing to play need to book an online play session prior to their visit to the casino. It is notable that all the promotional offers including free slot/match play and other gifting offers issued before April will no longer be valid. On the contrary, the existing free play balances and loyalty program points will be carried forward on the accounts.
With regards to safety measures, a spokesperson of Elements Casino said that the health and safety of their guests is always their priority. They are working diligently to develop a comprehensive health & safety plan for all of their sites, in collaboration with gaming regulators and provincial health officials. The casino business has been hit hard by almost 6 months-long shutdown. And, now it is time to reinitialize the businesses for recovering the losses.
