Montreal Casino


A casino is a gambling establishment that offers various types of chance-based games, including poker, slot machines, and table games such as baccarat and roulette. Most of these games have a mathematically determined house advantage, which gives the casino a long-term profit. Those who possess the skills necessary to eliminate this house edge are known as advantage players. Casinos also offer complimentary items or comps to gamblers, such as free drinks or rooms.

Gaming machines, such as slots and video poker, are usually played by one player at a time and do not require the involvement of casino employees. Table games, such as blackjack and roulette, involve one or more players competing against the house (the casino), and are conducted by croupiers or dealers. Some casinos also offer random number games, which are based on the selection of random numbers.

Casinos often have restaurants and bars that serve food and beverages to their patrons. Some of these establishments are open 24 hours. Some have live entertainment. In addition, some offer hotel rooms and/or other services such as spas or golf courses.

The Montreal Casino is located within the St Lawrence River on Notre Dame Island, which is part of Jean-Drapeau Park, an urban park that was built for Expo 67. It is Canada’s largest casino and was opened on October 9, 1993. It is situated in two former Expo 67 pavilion buildings. It is a non-smoking casino. Its main competitor is the Hôtel de la Colombes, which opened in 1995.
