There are now increased casino offerings in Ottawa, Canada where, after years of debate, table games have been added to the Rideau Carleton Raceway ending Casino du Lac-Leamy’s table game monopoly in neighboring Gatineau, Quebec.
The table games are part of an expansion and transition of Rideau Carleton Raceway into Hard Rock Ottawa.
More than new 100 jobs have already been created at the Rideau Carleton Raceway Casino, according to area officials.
Hard Rock’s stake in the joint venture is 51 per cent, with the raceway holding the rest. Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock International, said when announcing the joint venture nearly a year ago, that the company has a vision that includes a hotel, 2,000-seat music venue and all the amenities that come with a Hard Rock-branded property, such as a bar, the rock memorabilia and retail merchandise.
