Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (GCGC) has announced the completion of agreements with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and the Kawartha Downs racetrack for the re-opening of the slot facility at the Fraserville, Ontario venue.

The Kawartha facility is part of the gaming bundle operated by Ontario Gaming East Limited Partnership (OGELP), as service provider to OLG. The racetrack will host 150 slot machines and will join the gaming facilities operated by OGELP in Peterborough, Belleville and Gananoque, Ontario.

Rod Baker, Chief Executive Officer of GCGC, explained: “The Kawartha facility was originally planned for closure as part of the opening of a new casino in Peterborough in October of this year, but we have worked diligently with the Ontario government and OLG to create agreements that we feel benefit all stakeholders. We are very pleased with the outcome and our expectation is that this operation will be a productive contributor to the gaming bundle.”

He added: “I would like to thank the loyal customers of Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs for their continued support and we are excited to further contribute to the customer experience and meaningful employment opportunities in Ontario.”
