Great Canadian Gaming Corporation is willing to make 2019 a memorable year for Canada’s gaming field and its own development, an agenda confirmed by its latest announcement. It became clear that this Monday welcomed Terrance Doyle’s promotion to President, Strategic Growth and Chief Compliance Officer, which is expected to bring innovation and a fresh approach with his extensive experience in the field.
Innovation is key and large companies are aware that in order to achieve excellence in a given field, they have to introduce new approaches and players that could change the direction of development. Mr. Doyle’s appointment to the leading position became effective immediately and he is already working on the responsible tasks at hand. One of the most important tasks at the moment would be the expansion across Ontario.

Mr. Doyle has more than 22 years of work in this field and is especially well-acquainted with the casino operator’s development. Up until now, he was Great Canadian Gaming’s Chief Operating Officer with close relation to the Ontario expansion and the ongoing projects in this general direction.
It could be recalled that 2018 was a special year for the gaming operator, as it inked an arrangement with the government of Ontario for the opportunity to oversee operation of casino venues in the province. With this move, the local gaming field is going to see diversification and upgrades that could boost its performance down the road.
In May 2018 the casino developer together with Clairvest Group Inc. became the official operator overseeing locations of the West Greater Toronto Area Bundle. Great Canadian Gaming Corporation was joined by Clairvest in Ontario Gaming West GTA Limited Partnership that would oversee operation of the gaming venues in the area.

The overall price of the acquisition deal reached CA$134 million because of its substantial scale. The locations in question are OLG Casino Brantford, OLG Slots at Mohawk Racetrack, OLG Slots at Flamboro Downs, as well as OLG Slots at Grand River Raceway. This is how the locations underwent a complete rebranding, resulting in their names now being Elements Casino Brantford, Elements Casino Flamboro, Elements Casino Grand River, and Elements Casino Mohawk.
The casino developer increased its overall number of slot machines in operation with 2,500, added some 60 table games to its portfolio, as well as included 1,400 individuals to its overall staff count. With this modernization agreement that saw the casino operator expand its hold across Canada, the said venues are going to be overseen by Great Canadian Gaming over the following 20 years.
This province was the latest addition to the portfolio, joining other areas to the likes of British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Washington State and a total of 28 gaming facilities. The former Liberal Government was later accused that the price it slapped on said gaming location was lower than it should have been. In the meantime, gaming performance of the casino operator saw a 126-percent surge over the last quarter of 2018. It was boosted partly because of Shorelines Casino Peterborough’s launch.
