Visit The Ex Casino at Toronto’s Canadian National Exhibition.
The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) is one of Toronto, Ontario’s most popular attractions. The annual fair is teeming with entertainment; everything from animals to aerial acrobatics, games and rides, parades, musical acts, waterfront park performers and so much more. CNE offers fun for the whole family, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Since its inception in 2012, LeoVegas has been recognized several times for innovation in the gaming industry. With no less than 15 awards, it has established itself as the hub of real money gaming entertainment in Canada.
Since then LeoVegas has expanded its portfolio of offerings, the most notable addition being a high-end "live dealer casino". To accomplish this feat, LeoVegas invested in state of the art technology, including real time camera systems coupled with top of the line security systems to mimick the brick and mortar casino feel online; and with the most attractive dealers you have ever seen.
LeoVegas covers the entire pantheon of classical games from slots, table games like blackjack, video poker, progressive slots, scratch cards, to casual games. The games are powered by Playson, slick and easy to use software, which offers the whole gamut of a premium gambling experience.

A tradition for nearly 140 years, CNE is among the top 5 agricultural fairs in all of North America. As fabulous as the event is, there is one drawback… it’s only open for 5 weeks each summer. That means you’ve only got a few weeks left to visit the spectacular exhibition before it closes on September 3, 2018. That includes the enormously popular adult entertainment venue, CNE Casino.
The Ex Casino at CNE Toronto
Canada plays host to well over one hundred casinos. There are opulent casinos, modern casinos, classically elegant casinos, big and small casinos… but there’s nothing quite like The Ex at Toronto’s annual CNE. If you’ll be in town anytime from Friday, August 17 to Monday, September 3, the Canadian National Exhibition is the place to be. And if you have any inclination for gambling, The Ex is the place to do it.
Located inside CNE, the casino entrance is in the northeast corner of the Better Living Centre, beyond the grand archway known as Princes’ Gates. The archway alone is a near-century-old historical structure, dating back to the 1920’s. This year’s rendition will feature a wide variety of popular table games; Multi-Action Blackjack, Roulette, WAR, Spanish 21, and 3-Card Poker.
The casino features an elegant outdoor patio, specially licensed for gambling. Guests will be treated to free live entertainment nightly, and a variety of delectable treats for sale along the midway.
CNE Casino also hosts a large, air-conditioned poker room. Texas Hold’em and Omaha Poker cash games are always on tap from noon-6am. Returning this year is the CNE $160,000 Hold’em Poker Tournament. Daily $100+$20 Qualifier rounds are held from noon-2am and award seats in the semi-finals; in turn, awarding seats to the $6,400 Poker Tournament Final.
