The City of Windsor has continued to win big with OLG.

Recently released figures show more than $10 million in slot revenue came to the City for hosting Caesars Windsor since March 2016.

Proceeds have gone to city projects including Windsor Public Library service enhancements, Ouellette Avenue streetscaping and the Windsor Loop bicycle trail.

“The revenue received from our host gaming site agreement has helped with numerous projects and services,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens in a news release. “The difference their staff make is truly valued as well.”

OLG’s director of municipal and community relations Jake Pastore said every year, 100 per cent of OLG’s proceeds are invested in Ontario.

“OLG is proud to be a vital part of Windsor for 20 years and we look forward to continuing to build on that support,” said Pastore. “From healthcare to education to community festivals, OLG proceeds are hard at work in Windsor and all across our province.”

The City of Windsor has benefited from host gaming community revenue totaling almost $77 million since 1988.
