Casino Nova Scotia

Casino Nova ScotiaTThis is one of the most sought-after casino holiday destinations, partly due its location right by the waterfront with a beautiful view from the restaurant across the Halifax harbour. As the Casino Nova Scotia is located in Nova Scotia, patrons must be at least 19 years of age to play at this landbased casino.

Impressive Game Options

The establishment features a range of different types of games for all tastes, as well as several coin denominations available to suit a variety of budgets. There are over 550 Slots available in total – both video and Reel machines – accepting Canadian dollars from $0.01 to $100. Some of these are linked to Progressive Jackpots promising some pretty hefty payouts.

The selection of Table games could be larger, but still features all the much-loved classics: Blackjack, Roulette, Texas Hold’em Poker, Baccarat and Craps. There are several varieties of these games to enable players to find their favourite version.

The Casino Nova Scotia also hosts some extremely popular Poker tournaments, with keen players coming from miles around to participate.

Quality Facilities and Dining

In addition to the more than 650 casino games on offer, Casino Nova Scotia also features several dining and drinking facilities, and an abundance of entertainment options. Casual dining at Trapeze is on offer, as is more formal dining in a stunning restaurant. The Compass Room and Schooner Room are home to live entertainment, exhibitions and conferences, and there’s also live music in the Harbourfront Lounge.

Accessing the casino is made easy thanks to the attached 550-car parkade and there are 14 wheelchair accessible spaces ensuring that handicapped players are well catered for too. Additionally, the casino is connected via a pedway to the Halifax Harbourfront Marriot Hotel and the Sheraton Hotel Halifax. Guests at either hotel can walk across whenever they please and the pedway also connects to the downtown core, making exploring the area even more enjoyable.
