The Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort is now the second casino in the U.S. to offer slot machines that accept Canadian currency. Due to declining exchange rates, the casino saw an opportunity to provide added value to the Canadian guests.
“Research shows that one casino has already converted some of their slot machines to accept Canadian currency and we wanted to do the same,” said Shannon Keel, general manager. The process involved extensive research and analysis to come to fruition. Over 100 slot machines have already been converted to accept Canadian currency and these banks of machines can be located in both smoking and non-smoking sections. “We are anticipating these machines will help alleviate issues with the current exchange rate and allow guests to Play Canadian and Win Canadian on slot machines, as well as table games, bingo and Canadian at par in the hotel.” said Keel.
