GATEWAY celebrates opening of CASCADES CASINO NORTH BAY
Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited (“Gateway”) is excited to officially open Cascades Casino North Bay (Cascades) at 300 Pinewood Park Drive, Ontario, Canada. Cascades will feature 300 slots and 6 table games and 10 virtual tables as well as Gateway’s signature restaurant brand, MATCH Eatery & Public House. The new casino represents an investment of $41 million in North Bay and the creation of 200 new jobs.
Central to Gateway’s success has been the development of proprietary casino and restaurant brands. The Cascades brand is built around the design inspiration of “Play”. Gateway has successful Cascades properties in Chatham, Ontario and Langley, Kamloops and Penticton, BC.
Gateway Casino’s signature restaurant brand MATCH Eatery & Public House offers the welcoming experience of a neighbourhood pub with the high energy and excitement of a sports bar, plus live entertainment. MATCH will welcome families with children and there’s a menu to suit every taste. The beautiful and spacious outdoor patio also offers a three-season dining experience starting through the spring, summer and fall with cooling mist dispensed on those hot summer days and outdoor firepit heaters when the temperatures drop.
“This is an exciting and long-awaited day for North Bay, Gateway Casinos and all our customers and employees. 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,” said Gateway CEO Tony Santo.
“It’s really a unique design. The place is entirely purposed for entertainment,” said Rob Mitchell, a spokesperson for Gateway Casinos.
A commitment to responsible gambling is integral to how Gateway operates in Ontario including OLG’s PlaySmart program. Together with OLG and other government partners, Gateway will continue to implement responsible gambling initiatives at all properties across Canada.
A grand opening event, with an official opening ceremony of the new Cascades Casino North Bay, is planned for later this spring.
