A four month long pilot project will take place on these two Canadian casinos to measure the data and information regarding people visiting the casinos.

Susan Olynik, an executive of Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries said it was very important for us to change the timing and to make our players/visitors think that we are taking care of them.

We were witnessing that hundreds of people visiting the casino especially on weekends, and we always found that there are at least 300 to 400 people playing casinos every tim at the closing time.

And that’s why we thought to provide some more space to the players visiting our casino on weekends. The doors of the casino will open on 10:00 a.m. on Friday and it will stay open till 3 a.m.

Now after the implementation of the 24-hour schedule, these two casinos will be the last in country to operate 24 hours.


Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries executive mentioned that how we noticed people playing casinos at the closing time.

The pilot project is for four month and if everything goes okay and without any problem, we will be evaluated to determine if the extended hours will remain on an ongoing basis.

The casino is expected to generate a good sum of revenue $6 million in a year and if this pilot project passes, it would make an impact on the casinos and it simply means that revenue of the casino will grow.

Meanwhile the casino will not be open on Christmas evening and no liquor will be served after 3 a.m. in that case Canadian online casinos can help you to play.

However some of them are also thinking about gambling addiction and for that they had provided gambling helpline contact numbers as well.
