Casino Windsor, Windsor
Caesars Windsor is one of four casinos in the Detroit–Windsor area. It's located on Windsor's riverfront overlooking the Detroit skyline near the Canadian end of the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel.
The "Forum" hotel tower stands at 23 stories tall and opened in 1998. The "Augustus" tower stands at 27 stories and opened in 2008.
Caesars Windsor is popular with some 19 and 20-year-old Americans because the drinking age in Ontario is 19 compared to 21 in the US.
Casino Windsor is currently undergoing some major renovations, it is becoming Caesars of Windsor, and it's still a great place to visit.
There are the casino usuals of slot machines and gamble ling tables, bars and a variety of shows. The Casino also has a fabulous hotel with beautiful Detroit skyline views.
Even if you don't gamble the Casino is a great place to visit.
The Casino buffet is also a great place to eat with a huge variety of different cuisines and desserts for a very reasonable price.
There is even free parking in the casino parking structure!!
There are but a handful of places scattered aross the United States where gambling is legal; Las vegas, Atlantic City, Reno and the now destroyed area of Biloxi, Mississippi. So it was with complete interest and curiosity when I came to Canada (in Edmonton, Windsor and Niagara Falls) that there were actually casinos in these particular areas. Hansi, Lori and I went to the one in Niagara as well as the one in their hometown of Windsor, Ontario which is located across the Detroit River from the state of Michigan. Windsor is connected to the city of Detroit via the Ambassador Bridge. One reason people are drawn to this area is because of the casino.
The Windsor casino is open daily 24 hours. The 100,000 square foot casino features 3,300 slots and eighty-five table games. The property has four restaurants and a hotel with 389 rooms. You would be hard pressed not finding something to your liking here. Casino officials are bracing to lose gamblers to Detroit casinos when Ontario imposes a no-smoking ban on all public buildings next year. Now that would not be so terrible would it? I suppose if you are a smoker then it maybe of an inconvenience but you might live a bit longer to spend your winnings.
Other amenities include: ATM, Currency Exchange, Free Parking, Free Valet Parking, Gift Shop, Lounge, Non-Smoking Sections.
Please go and see if you can win back the $20 I lost, Kat should never gamble, she is not good at it at all!
Over 3,000 slot machines and 100 table games....if casinos are your thing...you'll find it here. Bars, lounges, music, restaurants. There is a hotel and FREE parking! Not as grand as a Vegas casino, but close enough!
Of course we went to Casino Windsor. It's the biggest thing in town, so we had to see it. This enormous $500 million palace is filled with bright lights, splashing fountains, and people with vacant expressions mindlessly plunking their money into the slots.
Truth is, we just aren't the casino types. As is our custom in such places we set a limit of $10 each from our "mad money" fund and invested it in the 25 cent slots. It took us more than half an hour to lose our money. Having had our fill with gambling, we tried one of the casino restaurants for lunch. The food was mediocre at best.
If you are the sort of person who enjoys casinos, some say this is the best one between Atlantic City and Las Vegas. We thought Windsor offered many things that were better worth our time.
Opened in 1998, the riverfront casino is the major tourist draw for Windsor. In addition to the usual gambling activities, the casino also has several restaurants, a hotel, a 60 foot waterfall and live entertainment in the Showtime Lounge.
You must go to the casino at least once. However, they won't let you take pictures inside! boohoo! Only of the inside of the Hotel. I'm waiting on the pictures that my daughters friend took to put on here when we get them.
