Game Selection Rating

Cash Games

1/3, 2/5, and 5/10 No Limit games.

10/20, 20/40 Limit Games

50/100 Limit Games are available by request.

The 1/3 and 2/5 games do attract mostly recreational players and the 5/10 attracts mostly regulars.
It is standard for all of the games to have straddles and deep stacks.

Wait times at the 1/3 level are notoriously long and there is no calling into the wait list. You have to add yourself to the wait list on site. The higher stakes is easier to get a seat at.

Tournaments

There is currently no tournament schedule available.


Rake Rating

All games will have a rake of 10% to a maximum of $20. We consider this rake to be abnormally high and makes the 1/3 games utterly unplayable. This blatant overpricing is shortsighted and will not contribute to the health of the games.

Staff Rating

The staff at Great Canadian Casino are friendly and the dealers are decent but seem less experienced at dealing poker then some other Ontario poker rooms. It isn't out of the ordinary for the players to correct the dealers multiple times during a session. This was my experience and consistent with what has been reported elsewhere but it has been improving since the room has launched.

Overall Rating

In summary, it is our view that the rake is simply too high for any serious poker player to take this room seriously. If you are a recreational poker player that doesn't mind high rake and the location is convenient for you then give it a try.
