With the OLG firmly in Caesars’ corner, the only game in Windsor is there. To its credit, the Caesars Windsor is indeed a world-class facility in line with Caesars properties worldwide. Two hotel towers make up the casino grounds, which include all the amenities of a full-scale gaming center: restaurants, shopping, a performing arts center (known by the lofty name “The Coliseum”), etc.
At the centre are the video slots and video poker machines; Caesars Windsor touts its large collection of progressive slots and even progressive jackpot video poker, and these games are true quite a draw for the casino. Perhaps due to the loosening of online gambling law in the U.S., Caesars Windsor allows players to try their “bricks-and-mortar” slots machines online via the casino’s official website.
Caesars Windsor has all the standard table games in play whenever the casino is open: baccarat, blackjack, craps, roulette, Pai Gow poker, Caribbean stud and Let It Ride are all on offer. Caesars Windsor also hosts a unique import from south of the border, a riff on blackjack which they call “Super 4 Progressive Blackjack.”
In this game, aside bet may get the player and opportunity to combine his/her hand with the dealer's so as to make up a 4-card poker hand (and hopefully recoup some losses).
Particularly of note at the Caesars Windsor is the sportsbook operation at the Legends Sports Bar. Opened in 2006, this sportsbook represents the first such outlet of its kind in the entire country. Would-be punters from foreign lands should be advised that sports betting in Canada works a little differently than in most countries due to prevailing law set out by the Criminal Code. Expect “pool play”- and parlay-type offerings, rather than straightforward single-game wagers. (You might want to brush up on your hockey and Canadian Football League knowledge, too…)
