Best slots clubs in Ottawa for high rollers
This year has been a strange one for high rollers in Ottawa who like to visit slots clubs.
Lots of venues had to close their doors as a result of the coronavirus crisis, which is likely to have a long-lasting impact on the gambling industry across Canada.
Take your pick
Many experts believe that the pandemic will hasten the trend towards people playing their favorite slots games at online casinos, rather than visiting bricks and mortar facilities.
Some online casinos have a much bigger selection of slots than those found in a slots club – sites like DogSlots even allow players to test out games for free, without risking any money.
However, there is no doubt visiting slots clubs is a big part of Ottawa life for many people, though a lot of the available options are actually located just over the border in Quebec instead.
We have picked out some of the best slots clubs in the area for high rollers – check them out.
Rideau Carleton Casino
Located at 837 Albion Road, Ottawa, the Rideau Carleton Casino is currently closed for refurbishment but when it reopens there is no doubt it will be one of the best slots clubs in this part of the world.
The venue is being turned into a Hard Rock casino, which has led to a lot of local excitement, with the facility set to boast more than 1,000 slot games to play, as well as live harness racing and table games.
Slot games that are available to play at Rideau Carleton Casino range from 1¢ to $10, so high rollers are likely to be satisfied by the different stakes on offer.
As well as being one of the best slots clubs in Ottawa, the Rideau Carleton Casino has five dining establishments to try out, with tasty options available including Asian street food at the YOUYU Noodle Bar and The Clubhouse, which has a prix fixe menu.
There is even a VIP scheme for high rollers at this Ottawa slots club, with Rock Star Rewards offering member-only invitations to tournaments and a range of special events.
Casino du Lac-Leamy
Within easy reach of Ottawa is Quebec's Casino du Lac-Leamy, which was opened by the government around 25 years ago in a bid to raise funds for the state.
Found at 1 Boulevard du Casino Gatineau, the Casino du Lac-Leamy has a great array of slots games to try out, some of which boast life-changing progressive jackpots.
The Casino du Lac-Leamy's slot machine tournaments are also very popular as high rollers who visit the facility try to win as many credits as they can in a short space of time, with plenty of prizes up for grabs to the winners.
For people who want a break from the action when visiting Casino du Lac-Leamy, amazing shows are held at the venue's Theatre du Casino, but note that it is temporarily closed.
Guests may even want to spend the night at the award-winning Hilton Lac-Leamy hotel, which is also where visitors will be able to find the casino's on-site Le Baccara restaurant.
Motel du Parc
At the other end of the scale from the Hilton Lac-Leamy hotel at the Casino du Lac-Leamy is Motel du Parc, which has a number of slot machines even if it does not quite count as a casino.
Motel du Parc is actually where a lot of people choose to stay for a trip to the Casino du Lac-Leamy as it is much more affordable, but it still offers a chance to play some games.
The site has video lottery terminals available to play, while guests can also make the most of its brilliant location, minutes from Parliament Hill and at an entrance to Gatineau Park.
Motel du Parc's bar lounge is a great place to watch the big game of the day as it has high resolution big screen TVs.
High rollers who want to try something new when it comes to slots clubs might find a visit to the charming Motel du Parc to be the ideal change of pace.
And if none of our selections for the top slots clubs in Ottawa catch the eye, playing at online casinos instead is a fantastic option for high rollers in the area.
