Olg Casino Ottawa
Rideau Carleton Raceway Casino hosts year-round live standardbred harness horse racing. The Rideau Carleton Raceway has launched an advertising campaign that appears to be aimed directly at Ottawa's Chinese community, despite a warning from Ottawa Public Health that it's among the ethnic groups at greater risk of harm from problem gambling.
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) announced Monday that Hard Rock International will partner with the raceway, with the two companies investing more than $320 million to create an "integrated entertainment destination" in the city's rural south end.
On Monday announced Hard Rock as the new operator of the gambling facility at the horse track, and together with the raceway, the global casino, restaurant and hotel company wants to transform the Albion Road facility into Hard Rock Casino Ottawa, while keeping a cornerstone attraction of the site.

Hard Rock Casino Ottawa — 51-per-cent owned by Hard Rock International, with the rest controlled by the owners the raceway — will take over the day-to-day operations of the slots at the raceway in the fall of 2017 as part of a 20-year agreement, OLG said in a release.
The deal with the OLG stipulates that the Hard Rock Casino Ottawa will honour the collective agreement of provincial workers who currently operate the slots at the raceway, until the contract expires in a few years when it will have to be renegotiated.

Hard Rock isn't planning to immediately ask for more gaming seats, but Allen said he hopes city council will consider the size of the investment that Hard Rock and the raceway will make. Andrew Wright, a director with the raceway, said horse racing is a driving force” behind the raceway and lauded the joint venture with Hard Rock for keeping the tradition going.
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has announced that Hard Rock International has partnered with the Rideau Carleton Raceway on a multimillion-dollar expansion. Wright said Hard Rock's stake in the joint venture is 51 per cent, with the raceway holding the rest.

Hard Rock International and the Rideau Carleton Raceway are betting that people will pack a $320-million gambling and entertainment complex in rural south Ottawa.

But the second phase would see a large expansion of entertainment offerings, including a new casino, four restaurants, a 2,000-seat venue for live music and a Hard Rock merchandise shop. Scott Moffatt, who represents the city at OLG host community meetings, said council would be open to any application by Hard Rock Casino Ottawa to increase table games.
In 2013, city council declared the Rideau Carleton Raceway as the only acceptable location for an expanded gaming operation. The new complex will be in tough competition with the well-established Lac Leamy Casino in Gatineau, which boasts 1,700 slots machines, about 70 gaming tables, a number of restaurants, an 1,100-seat theatre and a Hilton Hotel.
