Casino du Lac-Leamy


The Casino du Lac-Leamy is a government run casino in Gatineau, Quebec. The casino was opened in 1996, the third of a group of casinos built by the provincial government to raise funds. Ottawa, the larger city across the river, was also planning to build a casino in the early 1990s, but these plans were blocked by the provincial government. The Gatineau casino thus also serves Ottawa and eastern Ontario. It is operated by Société des casinos du Québec a subsidiary of Loto-Québec. The casino provides the government with some $35 million per year in profit employs more than 1,500 people and attracts more than three million visitors annually.
The casino is built on a rocky precipice over what was once a quarry but is today Lac de la Carrière. This lake is home to a large fountain, whose jet is visible through much of the old Hull sector during the summer. To the east of the casino is Lac Leamy, from which it gets its name. Attached to the casino is a 349-room Hilton hotel. The casino also has a 1,100-seat theatre that has become one of the region's main music venues. The casino is also home to several bars and restaurants. In the casino itself there are more than 1,800 slot machines and more than 65 tables including roulette, blackjack, baccarat, craps and Texas hold 'em poker.
