Quarterly gambling cash flows to Point Edward and Sarnia

The Village of Point Edward has received $427,063 as its slice of the quarterly gambling revenue at the Starlight Casino for April to June.

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation announced the payment in a news release Friday, as well as $111,805 Sarnia received as host of Gateway Casinos Sarnia at Hiawatha Horse Park.

The quarterly payments are made to host communities based on a formula applied to all gaming sites in Ontario, the corporation said.

It said Point Edward has received a total of $49,143,397 since the casino there opened in 2000 while Sarnia has received a total of $26,923,457 since its gaming site first opened in 1999.

The original slots location at Hiawatha was closed by the province in 2012 and reopened in 2020 with fewer machines.
