Great Canadian Gaming Corporation was founded on a charity casino model dating back to early 1980’s. With over 30 years of experience in the gaming entertainment industry, we are able to support your organization in creating a casino theme event.
In order for Great Canadian to support and host the charity casino night portion of the evening, the following provisions need to be fulfilled:
Your charitable or community organization must obtain an appropriate gaming license through the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch. For a full breakdown of GPEB licensing provisions and applications, please visit this link for more info.
Please note that there are primarily two options for structuring a charity casino night which might impact your gaming license.
- Option 1: Charge for play. This option refers to having your guests pay and obtain a certain amount of funny money or value chips to play with. The money is a donation to the charity while the players compete for the top three spots where the chip leaders receive non-cash prizes.
- Option 2: Do not charge for play. This option refers to having the guests not pay for play. Value chips or funny money is given to the guest without a charge.
- The GPEB license for your event must be submitted to Great Canadian two weeks prior to date of your event.
Upon successful receipt of a gaming license, Great Canadian will provide the following:
- 1. Four Blackjack tables
- 2. Professional dealers dressed in uniform for a period of four hours
- 3. Cards, chips and necessary gaming equipment
- 4. Chairs (if required)
Please note that transportation for the above mentioned items will need to be procured by the organizer of the event.
