The Montreal Casino is a great place to go just for a visit unless you are a serious gambler. Me and my freinds went and each spent about 20$ in the .25 cent machines. I was up 10 bucks once but that didn't last long of course. They also offer table games such as blackjack, poker and so on. I hear they have some amazing shows as well. Apparently the most lit Casino in the world! Very nice!
It's supposed to be the most lit Casino in the world (so they say..) It's a european style casino which means that there not that much return.
But then again the governemnt owns the place..ever seen a governement give much money to the citizens?
Either than that it'a popular venue for starts such as Matt Damon, Ben Afleck etc..
People seem to like it. I've been there only once..casino's are not my thing..but it looked nice and there is a restaurant with good shows

The Montreal Casino
I guess I should mention the casino as a 'Must see activity'. I never been there since the building has been converted to a casino, but it was part on the Expo 67 exhibition and it is a beautiful building. The casino and its extension are of international caliber and can occupy you for a while.
I'm not a big fan, but the site is really incredible, in the middle of the jean Drapeau gardens and surrounded by St-Lawrence river, and the architecture is impressive. At night, it's magical ith all the lights. Otherwise, it's open 24/7, non-alcoholic beverages are given to the players, lounge, free parking, entrance and cloakroom, currency agency, shop. The cabaret presents great shows and the Nuance restaurant is exquisite! 18+
Open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Must be 18 years or older. A free shuttle is available from various areas of Montreal from 10am until 7pm with hourly departures. There is bus service from the Jean-Drapeau Metro Station every 10-20 minutes. On Sundays through Fridays from 5:30am - 12:45am and Saturdays from 5:30am - 1:15am. The Casino has restaurants and events. Games include blackjack, craps, slot machines, roulette, baccarat, pai gow poker.
I didn't get a chance to check it out as we were quite busy with dining out and participating in the conference receptions. Maybe next time.
Whether you're the worlds biggest gambler..or if you're more of a believer in hard work for money..the montreal casino should not be missed out on! The original exterior of montreal's casino and its sleek interior make it a place that is worth your time. I went there with a few freinds and tried out our luck with the slot machines. Although I didn't get rich, I managed to get some money to pay for valet lol
Get you gameing on!!

I have never really been in another casino, but I beleive that this one is very beautiful! And at night, with all the lights on, it's magic! I don't have any picture, but go on this site... http://www.casino-de-montreal.com/langue_cm_fla.htm
My friend wanted to see this because she liked the architecture of the building. We walked around for a bit but we really had no money to go and gamble.
What can i say, it's a Casino.
The casino it's a little bit far from the downtown, actaully it's out side the island, so you must take ca cab or subway.
