Chandler adds that based on their social media response, they’re expecting plenty of visitors this weekend. However, with the information provided by the government and BCLC, there have been some adjustments made in the casino. “It’s been extremely hectic, it’s honestly day-by-day and hour-by-hour sometimes as far as waiting for the government or BCLC to give us direction on what’s coming up,” she explained. All of the staff at Treasure Cove that were working prior to the pandemic have been offered their jobs back, and about 80% have accepted the offer.
Do casinos watch you?
Casinos generally use surveillance to look out for criminals who prey on tourists and the cheaters. And, yes, Derk says they can actually zoom in on your cards if they wanted to. So somewhere in the casino, in a locked, high-tech room, a security guard you'll never see might be telling you to “hit.”
The extended closure has hurt the community with the loss of employment and patronage for local businesses, Chief Williams said earlier this summer. However, the First Nation has continued to receive lease payments during that time under the terms of the funding agreement between the community, province, and casino operator. “It’s been steady,” adds Chief Williams, but with capacity restrictions in place, only about 400 out of 1,000 employees are back at work. In this sector, there has been a definite divide between the haves and the have-nots. The haves are those operators who have a presence in cyberspace.

With the exception of a brief, limited reopening in the fall, the casino has been closed since March 2020, putting most of its 2,700 employees out of work. A limited number of employees worked during the pandemic in roles such as security and maintenance. The casino’s opening will come a week after Ontario enters the third phase of reopening. Under the newly loosened rules, the casino can open at half capacity, meaning it could accommodate 2,500 patrons. Caesars Windsor, which has been closed for much of the pandemic, plans to reopen later this month, when Ontario will be in Step 3 of its reopening plan. Gamblers wanting to try their luck at two of Canada’s largest casinos have had to wait 16 months for them to reopen during the pandemic. Fallsview Casino and the neighbouring Casino Niagara, both located in Niagara Falls, officially reopened this morning at 10 am. But at an exclusive sneak peek for VIP members two days ago, which I attended, we had to wait a few more hours in line. Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara will reopen on July 23, so if you’ve been itching to roll the dice or try your luck at the slot machines, you won’t have to wait much longer.
