“There is a rumor going around that Pickering Ontario casino will be opening by the end of this year” says a Pickering Ontario casino operator in an email to his client list on April 30th, 2020. “The project is well underway and the first phase of the facility is scheduled to be up and running by the end of this year. The second phase of construction will then begin in earnest with a focus on hotel facilities and gaming. One Toronto gaming is in the planning stages of building the second portion of the hotel.” “One Toronto Gaming started the construction of the second phase of Pickering casino resort last year and anticipates that it will open by the end of this year. The second phase of construction will then begin with a focus on hotel facilities and gaming. One Toronto gaming is in the planning stages of building the second portion of the hotel.”
“Another rumor that is circulating is that the first phase of construction is completed, but then the developer decided to build a second phase of the project at the same site, which is now called the Yorkville area. This rumor is false.” “The second phase of construction will encompass all of the hotel’s dining, gaming, and banquet facilities. This phase will not only include new hotels, but will also include expansion at various hotels in Pickering, including the Yorkville site and other Pickering casinos. As a result, this second phase of construction will likely be quite lengthy.
One casino operator added, “We’re confident that the next phase of construction will be finished by the end of this year,” and stated, “We’re very excited about the project and have already begun working on it and anticipate being able to announce it in the near future.” “After a long period of time away from the gaming industry, this facility is looking for new ways to attract new clients,” said Mike Coughlin, Executive Director of One Toronto Gaming. “These two new hotels are sure to be huge hits.” “This facility will also be known as Yorktown Casino Resort and Pickering Plaza,” said Coughlin. “The construction is proceeding on schedule, and this new casino resort should be up and running within the next few months.”
“There has been a lot of buzz about this project and it appears that there will be no way to get the word out without announcing it through all of the major media outlets at once, so if you’re someone in the media, keep an eye out for announcements,” said one Pickering Ontario casino operator in an email to his client list on April 30th, 2020. “I’ve heard rumors about the opening date for this resort changing multiple times over the past few months.
I do know from sources close to this project that the opening date hasn’t been set yet, but it will likely be at the start of next year, but that may just be an estimate, as construction has not even begun yet,” said one of my sources. “If we do hear anything about the opening date for the Pickering Ontario casino opening this year, you’ll probably be able to expect it on one of those ‘hot topics’ lists. But, more than likely, there will be another announcement soon after the first one.”
There has been no official announcement yet about when this casino will officially become open, but I am sure that the casino operator I spoke with on April 30th was referring to the project when he stated, “we are very excited about this facility and have already begun working on it and anticipate being able to announce it in the near future.” In the meantime, I do recommend that all casino goers plan on visiting this casino facility very soon.
