RAMA, Ont. — Casino Rama Resort is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month with a variety of events and giveaways.
The resort’s history began in the early 1990’s, when a small community east of Orillia, Ont. decided to enter the bidding process alongside 13 others to become the host site for the province’s first casino on native land. The community of Rama ultimately won the bid and the resort opened in July of 1996.
Today, Casino Rama Resort boasts a dynamic gaming floor with over 2,500 slot machines, more than 110 table games and offers eight restaurants. It is also home to a state-of-the-art entertainment centre featuring A-List entertainers year-round, as well as an all-suite luxury hotel, which is filled to capacity most nights.
“To see what has transpired here in just 20 years is an incredible achievement for this community,” says Jenna Hunter, Casino Rama Resort’s director of public relations. “We are one of Canada’s most successful commercial casinos. Since we opened, close to $9 billion in revenue has been generated.”
