Casinos in Ontario have a long history so you’ll have lots to choose from, including plenty of choices convenient to Toronto as well as several in popular tourist areas such as Niagara Falls.
As far as selecting the right casino to visit, in many cases you can read reviews and trip reports first at online casino sites and portals such as 'Gambling Planet' to help narrow down the choices, or instead simply plan on dropping in at some or all of the casinos listed below.
