The Casino Nova Scotia opened a temporary location in the
Sheraton Hotel Halifax on June 1, 1995. On April 24, 2000 it moved to
a brand new, $100-million "Vegas-style" facility on the downtown
Halifax waterfront. It was originally owned by Caesar's until October
2005, when Casino Nova Scotia was bought out by Great Canadian Gaming
Corporation. When the Casino was sold to Great Canadian Gaming the
affiliated Sheraton Hotel was sold separately to the Marriott
Corporation. In 2007, workers at the casino voted in favor of
organizing a labor union.
The casino has 650 slots and table games. There is an attached 550-car
parkade, including 14 wheelchair-accessible spaces.
