Rake Rating

  • Rake: $7 per half hour session fee.

The $7 every half-hour session fee translates to about 5BB per hour in rake at the lower stakes. While slightly high, it offers the best rake value in Ontario as of this writing. This session fee structure can be better for players compared to a fixed rake, especially given the high rake rates elsewhere in Ontario.

Staff Rating

The staff at Casino Niagara are well-trained and courteous. Customer service is handled with care, and the floor staff do a great job. The dealers are generally good, though a few can be a bit talkative, which can slow the game down and be somewhat annoying given the high rake.

Overall Rating

In summary, Casino Niagara is recommended as the second-best option for grinding in Ontario. The introduction of a tournament schedule had made it much more attractive. For those looking for live games with a reasonable rake, Casino Niagara stands out as a top choice in the province. While the property lacks an on-site hotel, the nearby accommodations and the complimentary parking make it a convenient option for both local and visiting players​.

Overall, while Casino Niagara may not have the glamour of Fallsview, it provides a solid poker experience with a good mix of games and a favorable rake structure.
