As the largest Casino in Canada, just minutes from the US border and an easy drive from Toronto, Canada’s largest city, Fallsview Casino Resort gives a high-energy gaming experience in one of the worlds most magnificent settings.

Opened in 2004, the $1billion Fallsview Resort complex overlooks the mighty Horseshoe Falls, as well as the American and Bridal Veil Falls, and is one of the most prominent features of the Niagara skyline.  There is a grand but welcoming feeling throughout the property that has been the recipient of the CAA/AAA Four Diamond Award every year since it opened.

If your idea of a fun casino vacation is getting into your pyjamas, pouring a tall glass of Merlot, and putting your mobile on do not disturb to enjoy some slots from the comfort of your own home, you might want to check out our review of Jackpot City here

Casino Games and Fun

With over three thousand slots and video poker machines and 130 games tables there are plenty of options for the local and well-travelled player. The table games offer Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Roulette and many other favourites that cater to all gambling tastes and budgets. In 2015 the Casino completed a redesign of its Asian gaming area and the whole building has been originally designed in accordance with the ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui. 

There is a newly renovated Five-Star Poker room, billed as the largest in Canada and Western New York, equipped with nine state-of-the-art televisions ranging from 80" to 90”.  Make a note of this number + 1 (905) 371-7777 and you can call up to ninety minutes prior to arrival to be placed on up to three wait lists, then check in at the Poker desk upon arrival.

For high-limit Gamesters the Salon Prive´ offers wagering as high as five figures, the highest in the area, on a variety of games including Baccarat, Blackjack, Euro Roulette (Single zero) and Craps. 

Big Jackpots

Fallsview likes to advertise their jackpots as a big part of the winning experience at the Casino. Their first big payout came in October 2004 just 4 months after the Casino opened, when it paid out one of the largest slot jackpots in Canadian history, almost $5.8 million. In 2015 a Filipino nanny living in Toronto won $1million on a Mighty Millionaire slot game, after playing little over three minutes on the machine. In March 2016, a $1,073,904.69 jackpot on the TitanicTM Mighty MillionaireTM progressive slot game was paid to a woman from St. Catharines, Ontario.  She had played 27 spins over approximately three minutes.
