In Ontario, there are three major casinos that are operated by United States-based gaming companies. The only difference between these casinos and American casinos is that alcoholic beverages must be purchased in lounges that are separate from the gambling area. Casino Windsor is huge and boasts more than 100,000 square feet of gambling space. Casino Rama comes in second with more than 70,000 square feet, and Casino Niagara, located across from the Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls, is a three-level casino with more than 90,000 feet of space and a beautiful view.
All of the casinos found in the province of Quebec are smoke-free and feature all of the casino games that the people of Canada love the most. For instance, the beautiful Casino de Montreal is one of the 10 largest casinos in the world in terms of gaming equipment and offers live shows almost every day. The Great Canadian Casino and the Cascades Casino, both located in British Columbia, are extremely popular as well. The most popular casino in the province of Alberta is Frank Sisson's Silver Dollar Casino with more than 80,000 feet of gaming space.
Nearly all of the land-based casinos found in Canada are approved by the government and are required to pay taxes and levies. Due to the increased revenue, it is very likely that more casinos will be built for the enjoyment of the Canadian people.
