"We truly value the ongoing commitment of our team members for making Casino Woodbine a great place to work and visit. Completing this four year deal with PSAC is another building block as we continue our significant development plan to transform Casino Woodbine into a world class entertainment destination," said Geno Iafrate, General Manager, Casino Woodbine.
