Charitable gaming in Sudbury could lose big as Gateway Casino deal unfolds

Local charities could lose major money if Gateway Casinos decides to build a new gaming centre, according to the Charitable Gaming Association of Sudbury.

The Charitable Gaming Association in Sudbury, Ont., is raising concern about how the new casino could take business away from the two local bingo halls. Those two facilities support 156 local charities by distributing around $2.5 million yearly from bingo revenues.
