Review written by Sophie Couard, on June 7, 2016.
Windsor is the southernmost city in Canada and located on the banks of the Detroit River right next to the eponymous American city Detroit. The town has many attractions, and you can admire the downtown skyline, the impressive Ambassador Bridge, the beauty of the Charlie Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain and the magnificent architecture of the Dillon Hall at the University of Windsor.
You can also visit Via Italia, the Windsor Sculpture Park and Ojibway Nature Centre, as well as many art galleries. The town also has a large casino that is owned by the government of the province of Ontario through the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and is operated by Caesars Entertainment Group. What exactly the complex has to offer is outlined in the rest of this review.
A complete game selection
The Caesars Hotel & Casino in Windsor opened on July 29, 1998 and it fascinates with an impressive design that is similar to the famous Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The atmosphere of the resort reminds of ancient Rome and you can access the casino 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The casino is spread out over 9,300 m² and everyone over the age of 19 can enter. Visitors who appear to be 30 years or younger must be able to present valid identification, and those between the ages of 19 and 21 must provide two different ones confirming their ID.
The slot machines
There are over 2,300 devices accepting bets from 1 cent, and you can play:
- games where you get the chance to win a progressive jackpot,
- mechanical slot machines,
- video slots,
- video poker,

- video bingo,
- multi-game devices,
- electronic roulette games.
This interesting selection offers classic games, but also rare games, such as Titan 360. This particular game is a monster of technology and there are only 26 available in the world. The establishment is also the only one in the Ontario and Detroit area, and one of only three casinos in Canada.
